Forbedring af et koncept

COP15 blev jo ikke nogen stor succes, så nu prøver vi et nyt koncept med markant mindre frihedsberøvelse af uskyldige mennesker og langt mere god rødvin. Vi kalder begivenheden for CAB5. På lørdag skal vi nemlig drikke fem vine, som alle er lavet på Cabernet Sauvignon, og hold da din fede kæft, hvor jeg glæder mig (også selvom den biodyna... ja ja, du gider ikke høre mere om det biodynamiske hurlumhejhus af en kalender!?).

Vinene er som følger:

Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley (USA) 2008 - købt hos Bergman Vin:

Open fruit, rich, lush and layered, serving up a complex mix of plum, blackberry, black licorice and spices. Full-bodied and supple-textured, ending with a long, persistent finish that keeps repeating the core flavor themes. Drink now through 2018."

The Coppermine Road, D'Arenberg (Australien) 2004:

The backward, opaque inky/purple-colored 2004 The Coppermine Road Cabernet Sauvignon offers up scents of blueberries, graphite, black currants, and background oak as well as licorice. Espresso and chocolate aromas also emerge as the wine sits in the glass. Deep, full-bodied, and chewy, this structured 2004 is best cellared for several years, and consumed over the following 12-15." Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #167

Nemo IGT, Castello di Monsanto (Italien) 2004 - købt hos Bichel:

In 2004 the Nemo shares a lot of stylistic qualities with Il Poggio. It is more varietally expressive than the 2003 Nemo tasted alongside it, with dark cherries, menthol, spices and sweet herbs that flow from its powerful, layered frame. It reveals considerable depth not to mention tons of potential although it comes across as somewhat reticent today. Though not inexpensive in absolute terms I would be hard pressed to name another Tuscan wine that delivers this level of quality and pure drinking pleasure for the money.

De to sidste vine er fra henholdsvis Frankrig og Chile, og så snart jeg har navnene på dem, kommer de op på siden. Forhåbentlig bliver det i aften.
