eRobertParker.com #222 Dec 2015 Robert M. Parker, Jr. Rating 95 Drink: 2020 – 2050 The 2013 M. Etain Cabernet Sauvignon, which is hardly a second wine by any means, offers beautiful blackcurrant fruit with some cedar wood/sandalwood notes, an opulent, full-bodied mouthfeel, stunning purity, and that layered texture that is so enticing. The wine has a beautiful opaque purple color, hints of graphite, blueberry and blackberry fruit, a touch of licorice and the soil undertones that some would say are part of the so-called "Rutherford dust" scenario, although that’s debatable. This wine has the sweetness and opulence to be drunk young, but won’t hit its prime for at least another 5-8 years and keep for 20-30. ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon M. Etain is in essence a second wine, but it sure doesnt taste like one. Its deep purple color is followed by pure black raspberry and blackcurrant fruit, dusty, loamy soil notes, extraordinary depth of fruit, ripeness and good acidity. This opulent, round beauty is ideal for drinking over the next decade or more.
