Chateau Elan American Reserve Velvet Red Blend 2014 Georgia, USA


My Rating 83 Points.  
Price $22.

Dark inky in color with a purplish rim.

Fruity nose with blueberries, metals, strawberries, grape juice, wood, spices, peppercorn and plums.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black pepper, oak, light cloves and peppercorn.

Full bodied with tongue tingling mouthfeel, from the pepper, and nice legs.

Medium finish with green, aggressive tannings and lots of black pepper.

50% Petit Verdot and 50% petite Syrah.

Very young. Not sure why it is served, but it has good potential.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
