Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, January 2013
The basic Fontenil (95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon) has a deep bluish purple color and relatively hefty alcohol at 14.5% but it is not noticeable in this full-bodied layered opulent wine with lots of black raspberry... The basic Fontenil (95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon) has a deep bluish purple color and relatively hefty alcohol at 14.5% but it is not noticeable in this full-bodied layered opulent wine with lots of black raspberry fruit intermixed with some blueberries and crushed rock. Both of these wines have a good 10-15 years of potential in a fine cellar.

This has ample flesh with a mouthfilling feel to the linzer torte blackberry confiture and spice notes all backed by sweet tobacco and fresh acidity on the finish. Very solid. Drink now through 2019. -JM

Attractive blackberry and mineral aromas and flavors follow though to a full body with well-integrated tannins and a medium finish. Try in 2016.
