Cadence Red Tapteil Red Mountain 2008
CLICK TO ENLARGE
Wild, soil-driven aromas of cinnamon spice, fresh herbs, red licorice, iodine and sage. Then quite backward and firm in the mouth owing to its strong acid/tannin spine. The 2007 Tapteil was sweeter and silkier at the same stage, but this wine's subtle intensity, complexity and claret-like structure suggest it will ultimately merit an even higher score. Today the finish is a bit less sweet and the tannins less refined than the 2007 Ciel du Cheval. - Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media
90+ Points!  The 2008 Taptiel is made up of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and 20% Cabernet Franc aged in 40% new French oak for 18 months. More reticent aromatically as well as more structured, it will require 4-6 years to fully blossom, so patience is required. The wine appears to be in balance and should evolve gracefully.  The Wine Advocate #196, August 2011
