TN : Lazuli Cabernet Sauvignon 2002, Vina Aquitania, Maipo Valley, Chile

This wine was imported by Arvid Nordquist AB (though no mention of this is made on their website !).

The wine was named after Lapis Lazuli, the precious blue gemstone of Chile.

Vina Aquitania is a partnership consisting of Paul Pontalier (Chateau Margaux), Bruno Prats (Cos D'Estournel), Ghislain de MontGolfier (Champagne), and Felipe de Solminihac (Chiliean enologist).

This wine was overpowered by the classy toasty oak but it had great fruit.

Colour : Deep purple

Aroma : Blackcurrant, red fruits, cassis, oak, cold tea

Taste : Blackcurrant, toasty oak, cold tea, hot finish

Alcohol : 13.5%

Price : 194 SEK

Mark : B

I think this wine is fabulous - tasted it blind and thought it much more expensive and refined than its price
