Cabernet Sauvignon (I), 1997

Livio Felluga - Esperto

Cabernet Sauvignon is probably the most famous red wine grape variety on Earth. It is rivaled in this regard only by its Bordeaux stablemate Merlot, and its opposite number in Burgundy, Pinot Noir. From its origins in Bordeaux, Cabernet has successfully spread to almost every wine-growing country in the world. Wherever they come from, Cabernet Sauvignon wines always seem to demonstrate a handful of common character traits: deep color, good tannin structure, moderate acidity and aromas of blackcurrant, tomato leaf, dark spices and cedar wood.

Chateau Cheval Blanc, 1997

St Emilion Premiere Grand Cru Classe

*** 92 Points - Robert Parker ***

reviews:
Cheval Blanc's 1997 performed well. It is neither as super-extracted nor phenomenally rich as the 1990 or 1982, but it is exotic, seductive, and opulently-textured. Yields were extremely low at this estate in 1997 (35 hectoliters per hectare), and the harvest, which began on September 8, did not finish until September 25. Because of their difficulties with the Cabernet Franc, this example of Cheval Blanc contains an atypically high proportion of Merlot. The final blend, which represents 35% of the estate's total production, consists of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc (contrast that with the more classic blend of 66% Cabernet Franc and 34% Merlot).

Chateau Cos d'Estournel, 1997

St Estephe, 2nd Growth Classification

Deep ruby-red color. Perfumed, vibrant aromas of black cherry, cassis, leather and oak spice. Big, sweet and rich, with lush black cherry and black raspberry fruit already offering enticing inner-mouth flavor. Less oaky on the palate than on the nose. Just a hint of herbaceousness. Finishes subtle and quite long, with impressively even, ripe tannins but not quite the snap of the '96. A terrific effort for the vintage. Stephen Tanzer Vinous

Chateau Latour, 1997

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe

*** 90 Points Robert Parker ***

"The 1997 Latour will be a surprisingly fine wine, as well as one of the longest lived offerings of the vintage. It possesses lots of tannin and depth, along with medium to full body, and a textured, multidimensional personality. Sweet, jammy fruit is intertwined with dried herbs, coffee, and earth in this saturated ruby/purple-colored wine. The finish lasts for 20 seconds, a positive sign for a 1997. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2018." Robert Parker, Wine Advocate 1999

Chateau Mouton Rothschild, 1997

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe

*** 90 Points - Robert Parker ***

Reviews:
"The superb 1997 Mouton-Rothschild is composed of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot. This wine reveals a sensationally flamboyant nose of black fruits, coffee, licorice, and creme de cassis. Medium-bodied, with sweet tannin, with lots of layers of flavor. It possesses good spice, an opulent texture, and remarkable length. This is a very hedonistic, open-knit Mouton that has put on considerable weight. Only 55% of the crop made it into the 1997 Mouton. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2022." Parker, Wine Advocate

Chateau Poujeaux, 1997

Moulis en Medoc

A very good wine from a great year with grip, tannin, medium to full body, and excellent ripeness, this unevolved, backward yet promising Poujeaux needs cellaring. There is some mineral-tinged, sweet black currant fruit in both the aromatics and flavors.

Cockburn Port, 1997

Vintage Port

Cockburn’s Vintage Ports are made both by foot treading in traditional open lagars, and in modern temperature controlled fermenters. Cockburn’s historically has declared vintages less often than other houses, selecting only those years that fit their more elegant style.

Wine Makers Notes 1997 was an excellent year in the Douro Valley. The harvest was one of the longest in living memory: at the far eastern extremities of the Upper Douro, picking began before the end of August and continued until the second week of October.

Dolcetto, 1997

New

F.lli Vigliano

A native black grape variety of Northern Italy grown almost exclusively in the provinces of Cuneo and Alessandria in Piedmont. It is relatively easy to cultivate, although it is susceptible to fungal diseases. It ripens before Barbera and Nebbiolo and is often grown in high north-facing sites which would be unsuitable for Nebbiolo. The finest Dolcetto wines come from grapes grown on soils rich with white marls, especially those found on the right bank of the River Tauro. The wines generally are low in tannins and acidity and are usually fruity and fragrant, often with hints of almonds.

Fonseca Port, 1997

Vintage Port MAGNUM (1.5 L)

*** 93 Points, Robert Parker ***

Deep inky ruby with a broad red rim just turning to brick at the edge. Generous and seductive nose redolent of blackcurrant and cherry. Dense, luscious black fruit laced with dark chocolate, liquorice and roasted coffee. Exotic herbal and resiny scents emerge an hour after decanting. Later the fruit becomes more luscious and creamier, with rich raspberry jam flavours overlaying the dark fruity base. The full round palate is supported by thick well-integrated tannins and delivers an abundance of luscious chocolate and blackcurrant flavour which lingers into the long velvety finish.

Madeira, 1997

New

Justino's - Tinta Negra

"The wine has a dark amber color with a lucid and consistent yellow edge. More than a Marsala, the impact of the aroma is like a great Viccotto from the Marche region, although it is much finer. The bouquet has less caramel and is less volatile with more notes of prune, dried fruit and bitter coffee. The mouthfeel is sweet and caramel-like with notes of black tea and coffee, while the finish is invigorated by a distinct acidity." Silver San Francisco International Wine Competition

Madeira, 1997

New

Justino's - Sercial

"Medium golden colour with hues of green and silver. Delicately intense nose of walnuts and pecan nuts with cinnamon and figs. The palate is beautifully firm, with an off dry impression which glides across the tongue in a very sleek and focussed manner; the acidity is electric . there is also a beautiful sapid salinity, flavours of lime and yuzu with rancio elements on the long, lingering finish. A sensational example. " Tasting Notes

Madeira, 1997

New

Justino's - Malvasia

"There won’t be a lot of this wine on the palate so it is a rare privilege to have tasted it. Amber in colour the wine is woody to the nose as it should be, it is on the palate that this wine reveals itself, extraordinary levels of layered flavour, nuts and candied orange, sweet but with an utterly bracing acidity that keeps the wine from being at all cloying. A rare wine and a world class wine, a true delight and a wine to share amongst the best of friends." Tasting Notes

Martinez Vintage Port, 1997

Vintage Port

A classy Port, full-bodied and brimming with fruit flavour and silky, fine tannins that kick in on the finish. A subtle wine that takes you by surprise.

Tasting notes: Good aromas and flavours of pepper, raisin and ripe fruit in this young vintage Port. Medium-bodied, medium-sweet, with a fresh aftertaste.

Martinez Gassiot goes almost unnoticed in the Vintage Port circles, but the house often makes outstanding Ports that equal on better those of its sister house, Cockburn's Smithes.

Production of Martinez Vintage Port is limited, with only about 3,000 cases made in a declaration. Martinez include only one single quinta called Eira Velha, located west of Pinhão Valley, Eira Velha encompasses about 120 acres.

Quarles Harris Vintage Port, 1997

Vintage Port

Established in 1680, Quarles Harris became a subsidiary of Warre in 18th century. Since then, Quarles Harris has continued making good Ports under the Symington's ownership. Peter Symington, has a simple saying to remember about Quarles Harris: "Unless they are good we don't bottle them, having ensured that tradition and expertise is passed from generation to generation thus maintaining the excellent reputation of Quarles Harris.

An elegant, dense purple-colored offering, this 1997 offers up sweet aromas of melted licorice intermixed with blackberries, black raspberries, and cassis. Soft, precocious, and pure, this medium-bodied, suave, graceful port should be approachable in 4-5 years and last until 2040.

Quinta de la Rosa, 1997

Vintage Port

La Rosa's classic house style achieved by slow maceration in traditional granite 'Lagares' has produced a wine full of luscious forward fruit with a very attractive nose and a long velvety slightly drier finish across the palate

La Rosa is a vertically integrated Quinta rising to 450 metres above sea level, boasting many hidden micro climates within its cirtilage. Where possible we vintage and mature these small 'lotes' separately in order to achieve the maximum complexity in the finished ports, which would not have been possible from a less diversely planted property.

Quinta do Noval Nacional, 1997

Quinta do Noval Nacional Vintage Port

Quinta do Noval is a much-venerated name in the Douro Valley and Nacional is undoubtedly one of the most legendary fortified wines in the world. It is produced from a small area at the heart of the Quinta do Noval vineyard planted with ungrafted vines that have remained untouched by Phylloxera and has an average production of between 250 and 275 cases. 1997 was widely considered to be an exceptional vintage for Ports of fabulous harmony and incredible structure.

1997 was the follow-up to the sublime 1994 and somewhat incredibly managed to ascend to even greater heights. A benchmark Nacional that will bring several decades of drinking pleasure.
