Sokolin 1996 Pape Clement Tasting Notes:

Could you imagine what freedom tastes like? Wind in your hair, your arms wide open, endless ocean or a beautiful grassland extending indefinitely in front of you, while the sun is slowly rising and announcing a new day. Like a breath of much needed fresh air, this wine will bring you back to life with the very first sip.

One of the purest representations of Nebbiolo grape variety. This Italian beauty is a well-regarded vintage and a must-have if you're a fan of this country's wines. Paolo Scavino winery poured its soul into this red, and you can tell by diving into the wonderfully crafted, polished body of the 1996 Barolo Carobric. On the nose, it's anything but average - an exceptional combination of licorice, berries, cedar and meaty notes swirling together around you as your glass is traveling towards your lips. The palate is a simply fascinating, rich blend of dark fruits, and earthy tones with vibrant tannins and a long-lasting aftertaste.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Producer P.Clement: With the first recorded grape harvests dating back to the 13th century, Chateau Pape Clement has a long and noble history. And believe us, the quality of these wines can turn a person religious because nothing short of divine intervention could have made a drink this delicious. Bordeaux as a region is richer and more reputable just by having an estate like this competing on its market, and we can only expect Chateau Pape Clement to remain a favorite among connoisseurs in the future. The wine glows with a delicate, alluring purple shimmer, and the flavor profile you will experience is just as magical. The flavor profile is generous and rich, with tasteful notes of tobacco and smoke creating a nostalgic barroom atmosphere while a concentrated yet approachable dose of dark red fruit erupts across your palate. Wines like this truly bring out a feeling of warm comfort, the kind you'd get from a cozy night near the fireplace, or a memorable get-together with friends.

Region Bordeaux: Even among the greatest and most reputable wine regions on the planet, Bordeaux stands above the rest. The winemakers of this region have a single-minded dedication to the fine art of viticulture and their efforts never fail to show. If you consider yourself a fine wine enthusiast, you owe it to yourself to visit Bordeaux - life changing. Whether you wish to drink some inspirational and gripping wine as soon as possible, or you want to add some masterpieces to your collection, no region on Earth is a more obvious choice. The noble and beautiful Garonne and Dordogne rivers surge through southwestern France, enriching the soil in a way very few other places can boast. The limestone-based earth is rich in calcium, and the almost oceanic climate conditions give the staple Bordeaux grape varietals vigor and flavor like nowhere else. For their illustrious reds, Bordeaux winemakers rely on a proven combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Meanwhile, a sip of their excellent white wine hints at the use of Semillon, Muscadelle and Sauvignon Blanc.Each of these varietals carries a unique identity, making every quality wine a character piece to rival Citizen Kane. It can be incredibly hard to choose only a few wines to collect for your cellar!
Type of Wine Bordeaux Red: Picture in your mind a combination of cedar, lead pencil, blackcurrant, plum and mineral aromatics, and texture that caresses your palate like a playful lover. The experience is thrilling from the first whiff to the final seconds of a tannic, generous finish - that is what you'll get from a Bordeaux Red
OWC No
