Wine Review: This very dark ruby and slightly opaque Merlot based wine from Lasseque is a big boy. It opens with a pomegranate, mild cedar, wet stone and black currant bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and savory. The flavor profile is a mineral influenced black currant with notes of cedar and black cherry. The hints of anise, black tea and a touch of Alessi Balsamic reduction sauce. The finish is dry and its tannins build-up and last for a very long time. It reminded me of a very good Petit Verdot even though there is none in it. This wine needs to be decanted in the near term. You can then serve it with a well-marbled steak or Roy’s rib roast. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The Lassegue 2016 is an outstanding vintage that displays concentration and power while retaining balance and freshness. It displays a deep, crystalline color and a bright violet-ruby rim. The nose is expressive of crunchy ripe red and black fruits, flint, rose petal and violet. The palate strikes immediately with a density of texture, balanced and lifted by bright acidity and freshness of fruit, which gives way to notes of spice underpinned by silky, elegant tannins. The long finish is driven by vibrant acidity, bright fruit, and a chalk dust-like minerality.
