Aubert Proprietary Red Lucia Abreu Vineyard 2005, 750mL (WA89-91, ST89+) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Aubert Proprietary Red Lucia Abreu Vineyard

750mL

Vintage: 2005
Region: US
Appellation: Howell Mountain, Napa

WA89-91, ST89+
Rated 89-91 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 2005 Proprietary Red Lucia Abreu Vineyard seems to have closed down since I tasted it last year even though it is still not in bottle. A blend of 47% Merlot, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Cabernet Franc, the wine has a dense ruby/purple color, wonderful purity, but jagged tannins and some austerity kept my score from going any higher. It exhibits more texture than last year, but I suspect I caught it on a bad day, and I will reevaluate it in 12 months. Mark Aubert is on the move, leaving Colgin Winery in favor of working for the Bryant Family Vineyard, while at the same time producing some of the world`s greatest Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs. He seems to have a plate filled with both potential and stress. The bad news is that one of his suppliers decided his Chardonnays were just too profound for the Quarry Vineyard, and will no longer sell him fruit from that source, and in 2006, there was so little Reuling available, that cuvee was not made either. In short, there are two fewer Chardonnays for the 2006 vintage! Nevertheless, those who got on the mailing list and secured some of his 2005 Chardonnays have some of the finest Chardonnays ever made in California at their beck and call. Of course, these are made from old Wente clones of Chardonnay, given full malolactic, aged on their lees, and bottled with no clarification. (Not yet released) Tel. (707) 942-5611; Fax (707) 942-1573` -- Tasting note by Robert Parker
