Reviews for 2009 Cantenac Brown Bordeaux Blend

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 through 2023.

...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... ...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 stunning... 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.
