LAUREN ASHTON Red Wine 'Cuvée Estelle' 2014

The 2014 'Cuvée Estelle' is a blend of largely Merlot with lesser parts Cabernet Sauvignon and the faintest hints of Petit Verdot and Malbec. Dark and brooding in the glass, this shows a highly perfumed aromatic profile of black tea, Asian spices, cigar shavings and mocha with lighter dark fruit tones currently secondary. The palate shows a marvelous texture, as Dr. Kit Singh has captured a wonderful mouthfeel here that beautifully compliments the Merlot character. Milk chocolate covered cherry, spicebox, tar and blueberry compote flavors come to mind. A complete wine, this is nearly impossible to resist right now but the ‘Cuvee Estelle’ will cellar marvelously for a decade or more.
