(RP90-93 points) A beautiful bouquet of sweet black currants, cedar wood, licorice, truffles and kirsch soars from this dense ruby/plum/purple-colored 2012. Round and generously endowed with medium to full body, sweet tannin and an endearing, seductive style, this blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc should keep for 12-15 years.

Bay, tobacco and mesquite notes lead the way, with a lush core of fig, boysenberry and plum fruit filling in quickly behind. Serious tobacco, charcoal and loam notes give the finish a hefty feel, but there’s purity... Bay, tobacco and mesquite notes lead the way, with a lush core of fig, boysenberry and plum fruit filling in quickly behind. Serious tobacco, charcoal and loam notes give the finish a hefty feel, but there’s purity and polish here, too. Cellar for maximum effect. Best from 2017 through 2027.—J.M.

(WE90-92 points) Barrel sample. With warm, dusty aromas and tannins, this wine is quite firm and dry. It's serious in disposition and mineral driven, and packed with firm tannins on the finish.

Pure blackberry, red cherry, mineral and rose petal aromas on the captivating nose. Then light and lively on the palate, with very refined flavors of red berries, ink and marzipan; bright acidity provides wonderful clarity and cut and really extends the flavors at the back. The smooth yet assertive tannins build slowly on the long finish. A terrific young Latour a Pomerol, but this will need time to develop further charm and softness. - Ian D'Agata

A dense and layered red with dried strawberries, cocoa powder, chocolate and shelled walnuts. Full body, round and chewy tannins. Dense and deep. Needs three or four years to soften and come together. Excellent texture... A dense and layered red with dried strawberries, cocoa powder, chocolate and shelled walnuts. Full body, round and chewy tannins. Dense and deep. Needs three or four years to soften and come together. Excellent texture. Better after 2018.
