"The entry-level 2014 Parabellum Bordeaux will certainly be an outstanding wine, and in a blind tasting, I’m sure it will seem much closer to the quality of the Estate Cabernet than the price would seem. Crème de cassis, lead pencil shavings, gravel and crushed rock all give way to a full-bodied, pure, elegant 2014 that’s much more upfront and approachable than the grand vin. Drink this beauty anytime over the coming decade."
A blend of 42% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 23% Cabernet Franc, the 2014 Parabellum Bordeaux is an entry-level wine that way over-delivers. Blackcurrants, graphite, lots of minerality, chocolate and just a touch of floral notes all flow to a rich, medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated and balanced Bordeaux blend that's going to drink nicely for at least 7-8 years, and my money is on even longer.
