Fantastic 4 – Malibu Coast AVA – Millesime 2014

A blend of Béatrice’s two favorite varietals that she couldn’t blend in France without losing the wine appellation as Syrah, is a Syrah from Rhone Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon, a Bordeaux varietal.

Malibu allows her to make a fleshy wine “gourmand,” with a beautiful aging potential, yet delicious immediately.

“Blending wines resembles cooking. I imagine a wine by combining texture, aromas and flavors to balance each asset and please the five senses. A balance that won’t stand for inexactness!”

Tasting Notes

From our Single Estate Family Vineyard, in the very heart of MALIBU COAST AVA, our 2014 ADMIRABLE Fantastic 4 PRIVATE RESERVE is the first vintage of this cuvee. The prefect example of this vineyard’s signature ability to balance richness and concentration with style and elegance, sublime combination of each varietal’s asset. Admire its profound ruby color with a shiny robe. The nose, is immediately obvious. Classically deep, ripe Californian Cabernet-Sauvignon and Syrah balanced with the Merlot finess. Flamboyant aromas of raspberry and blackberry jam quickly opening up revealling underlying hints of spicy notes with clove and creamy vanilla.
The elegant Merlot grapes embrace the powerfull Syrah and Cabernets for the most delectable feeling and perfect balance with long tasting aromas on the palate.

Béatrice Cointreau's Tips

Merlot has similar aromatic notes to the Cabernet-Sauvignon due to the same origin. Cabernet-Sauvignon and Merlot share the same “Father “, the Cabernet-Franc but Cabernet-Sauvignon’s “mother” is the Sauvignon-Blanc (where the name comes from) and for Merlot it is the Magdeleine-Noir des Charentes.

Food and Wine Pairing

Enjoy it with roost beef, potatoes pie, cheeses, coffee or chocolat dessert and welcome to heaven.
