tasting notes
Unlike the last few vintages of Mosaique, this is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with a little bit of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Initially it seems like a wine with so much fruit—cherry, blackberry, toast, herbs and vanilla. It shows both complexity and finesse. As it aerates, it shows a backbone of tannins but this is not about oak but purity of fruit. As with our Cabernets, it does show fuller and more complex the second day. It should prove to be a very versatile wine that can accompany lots of dishes.
