Blackwood Lane 2007 The Referènce - 95+pts
Availability: Direct from the winery and select private wine shops
Date Tasted: March 19th, 2011
Tasting Notes: Using all five Bordeaux red varietals and an intricate barrel-aging program, the Blackwood Lane 2007 The Referènce challenges the common meaning of the word "complex". It's a Louis Carroll rabbit hole of complexity, one that you will happily lose your senses to its depth as you quaff and sip this incredible wine. Full-bodied and powerful while remaining whimsical and refined due to its gorgeous expression of dark fruit, toasted oak and ultra-smooth tannins. A long, long finish with lingering spice accompanies every concentrated drop.
Released ready to be enjoyed, this wine will age beautifully for those willing to wait. Drink 2011-2022.
