Domaine du Castel : Petit Castel 2014

- Judean Hills - Red Domaine du Castel Domaine du Castel 2014 J2212/14
  • Parker : 90
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 Petit Castel is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Franc, aged for 14 months in mostly used French oak. Dry, serious and very classy, this Petit Castel has an Old World feel to it (forgive the stereotype). Showing moderate tannins in its youth, it has some grip on the finish and it improves notably with some time in the glass. Its concentration is subtle. The flavor never disappears, but the wine always seems very elegant. The one question I have with this is how well it will age. It will be better in a year or two, but after that I am not sure I see a lot of upside here. For the mid-term, it is quite beautiful, though, and if it proves me wrong, we'll revisit that when we get there.
