Comprised of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Petit Verdot, Le Colonne is a domaine to watch in Bolgheri, and they NAILED this landmark vintage. Look for notes of dark chocolate, black cherries, bay leaf, and a hint of vanilla. This Cabernet will truly shine with 5-10 years of slumber in your cellar. Look for this one to get a big score this year.
The aromas of blueberries and black licorice are impressive with aniseed undertones. Tar, too. Full-bodied, dense and powerful with a chewy tannin structure and a long, flavorful finish. Very structured. A new wine from the region to seek out. Try it in 2020.
