WE93
Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, February 2012
Firmly structured, dark-fruited wine, very solid and dense. It has weight along with black currant fruits and acidity. It's a wine that is rich but seriously structured for aging. R.V.

This is perfumy and very pure, with lovely lilac and blackberry aromas followed by plum, cassis and black cherry fruit. The supple finish is caressed with toast that leaves a lingering, perfumy feel. Best from 2013... This is perfumy and very pure, with lovely lilac and blackberry aromas followed by plum, cassis and black cherry fruit.

...Dense ruby/purple with notes of graphite, blackberries and forest floor, the wine is full-bodied, powerful, excruciatingly tannic and closed, and that may be why it's not showing as well as I predicted.

Certainly, this was the biggest discrepancy between barrel and bottle that I saw in the vintage, but the wine is still outstanding, just not profound. It will be interesting to revisit this wine in a number of years. Forget it for 7-8 years and drink it over the following 30.

65% cabernet, 30% merlot, and 5% cabernet franc. Deep crimson red color with a bright magenta rim. Beautifully ripe and modern on the nose with aromas of dark chocolate, espresso, kirsch, and blueberries. Absolutely... 65% cabernet, 30% merlot, and 5% cabernet franc. Deep crimson red color with a bright magenta rim. Beautifully ripe and modern on the nose with aromas of dark chocolate, espresso, kirsch, and blueberries. Absolutely stunning fruit on the palate with soft and supple tannins that seem to melt in your mouth. This is a decadent and massive wine to say the least and the best Cantenac-Brown I have ever tried.
