Once again I have the honor of writing the tasting notes for my favorite wine to blend. Our Order of the Cave is such a special wine to me because I truly do take so much time and care to select the barrels that go into this wine. As I taste through our lots of wine over the course of weeks to make the selections I only choose the barrels that I believe are the absolute best of what we have in our cellar from that vintage. Those barrels are blended and put into bottles that are only available to you, our wine club family.

Aroma: Wow, as I tasted this wine over the course of several days to write these tasting notes the wine has evolved and changed so beautifully. I liked it from the very beginning but as the wine was able to breathe and develop it transitioned from a wine that I really, really liked to a wine that I truly love! The nose is intensely aromatic with dense fruit aromas of blackberry pie, mission fig jam, and ripe plums along with subtle earthy notes of roasted chestnuts and baking spices.

Taste: The palate is every bit as rich and dense as the nose implies and like the nose, it evolves beautifully as the wine develops assuring that this wine not only will drink nicely upon release but will also age phenomenally well. As the wine hits your palate it coats every nook and cranny, not leaving a single hole, with a full and complex mouthfeel. The fruit and earth aromas work together with neither one of them overpowering the other as the wine sits on the palate. On the finish the earthy tones are the initial finish with the fruit coming back and extending the finish with flavors of fig jam and blackberry pie.

Food Pairing: I want a rich braised red meat with this wine. A perfect beef Bourguignon served over garlic mashed potatoes and oven roasted root vegetables would make a perfect mate for this beauty.
