Lot #218. Blankiet Cabernet Sauvignon Paradise Hills Vineyard 2000

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 93-95 ST.
"Full medium ruby. Full-blown aromas of kirsch, blackberry and dark chocolate show an exotic, almost port-like ripeness and sweet oak tones. Lush, sweet and voluptuous; boasts extraordinary ripeness and texture for a California cabernet with only 13.9% alcohol. Finishes very long and sweet, with suave, utterly fine tannins. The vines here are very young, but this appears to be one of the great successes of the 2000 vintage." Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, May/Jun 2002
Provenance: The Aquamarine Cellar
Notes: Lightly damp stained, lightly mold stained, lightly faded label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $45
