Will a rib-eye steak or seasoned wings go best with this Domus Aurea Cabernet Sauvignon 2014? First let me tell you about the wine. This cabernet is from upper Maipo Valley, the oldest wine producing region and home of the renowned Clos Quebrada de Macul vineyard in central Chile. This region is similar to Bordeaux in France. The color is a deep garnet. The bouquet explodes in your mouth with “I’m a blueberry and boy am I good!” There’s gravel undertones and just a little smoky. It’s slightly dry across the tongue with a very, very long finish. The tannin in this Cabernet is making this a very complex wine that needs to sit in the cellar for 2-3 years and then it is just going to get better! Strongly recommend throwing a couple of bottles in the cellar. Giving this wine 4 out of 5 glasses now.
By the way, this wine was excellent with the rib-eye steak and the seasoned bbq wings brought out peppery tones in the wine.
