CH. IGAI TAKAHA RED MERITAGE BLEND "'ULA 'ULA" SANTA BARBARA COUNTY 2013
NVWE Notes: This is a very satisfying, if quite exotic, Bordeaux grape blend. with a varietal personality that is extremely accurate, but a zest and sleekness of texture that is unexpected. The nose offers a focused mix of black raspberry, Amarena cherry, red currant, rose, cedar, licorice root and baking spice scents. Those same flavors prove bright and racy on the palate, and they linger nicely, with hints of sassafras, tobacco, black tea and leather added-on in a lingering, notably food-worthy finish. Likely to improve for another year or two, it should be especially appealing with fatty and sauced beef dishes, while it’s style might prove just as attractive with a spicy chicken or rabbit stew. A blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Cabernet franc & 20% Merlot. 150 cases produced.
