再飲 Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 Napa Valley

之前開瓶喝過一兩次之後,就好一陣子沒動,最近拿出來把剩下的半瓶分幾次喝掉,順便來寫一下詳細一點的 tasting notes。

I opened this bottle a few months ago, but only had a few glasses of this great Cabernet Sauvignon, then kept it till now. In these days, I took the left half bottle out again and served myself, and wrote down some notes as tasting records.

之前喝的時候只驚豔於她醒酒後有種類似香水的氣味,反而沒有仔細好好的去注意更細微的部分。最近幾天拿出來打算把她全部喝掉,就開始注意起細微的香味了。

剛倒出來的時候的香氣以偏酸莓果類香味為主,同時有些香料的氣味(spices)。搖晃(swirling)之後可以察覺到些許的香草味道。尚未醒酒之前,入口因為丹寧仍不夠細緻的關係而有點咬舌,在口中的味道和在杯中所聞到的蠻一致的,藍莓為主,些許巧克力味和些微辛酸口感。在醒酒的過程中可以察覺到微酸的氣味持續散發出來,過一段時間後這微酸的氣味變弱,其他的美妙香氣就變得明顯了,而醒酒後的丹寧沒有才剛倒出來的時候那樣咬舌但仍不夠柔順就是。

比起幾個月前剛開瓶的時候,丹寧比較柔順一些,香氣也比較飽滿,如果有看到這瓶酒的人其實可以買下來囤著,放個三五年後來喝一定會很棒。 😀

At the time I just opened this red, I was surprised by its perfume-like aroma, so that I did not pay much attention to its other detail tastes and aromas. In these days, I decided to drink the left half bottle, and try to notice its details.

The aromas are majorly berry fruits (a little bit tart) and other spices while just serving. After swirling, some vanilla hints can be found. Before it fully wakes up, that tannins are not supple enough, and the palates are consistent with the aroma — majorly blue berries. Besides, a little bit chocolates and spicy. When it breathes, some tartness is aware and comes out from the glasses, and this tartness decreases and other aromas become more clear as time goes by. After breathing, the tannins are still slightly rough, but better than when it just be served.

Compare to the prior tasting experience a few months ago, the tannins become more smooth, the smell is more flavored and denser. If you find this wine on the shelf, I think you can buy it and keep for 3 to 5 years for better tasting experiences. 😀
