CHATEAU CAP DE FAUGERES COTES-DE-CASTILLON - 2005
14.5% alcohol. A Michel Rolland wine. Made from 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon/Cabernet Franc.
Rich, dark purple color with heavy tannins. Nose of ripe blackberry, black currants, and plum. Big black fruit on the palate. Bold, robust, with hints of oak.
SCORE & RECOMMENDATION:
A powerhouse of a wine. I purchased for $16 on futures and that's a steal. I guess it shouldn't be a surprise given how fantastic the 2005 vintage turned out to be. If you can find this wine for a good price grab it. Not only is it great now it will last for some time and even get better.
