Expert Reviews

90(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - June 2012

Medium ruby-red.  Less flamboyant on the nose than the 2002, but with plenty of nuance to its aromas of currant, cherry skin, mint, menthol, pepper and herbs; a rose note emerged as the wine opened in the glass.  Suave, classy and very laid-back, offering a restrained sweetness and coming across as a bit muted today.  Plenty of texture here but the acids and tannins still need a couple more years to knit.  This elegant, classically dry cabernet remained impressively fresh and youthful for 48 hours in the recorked bottle.

Here, in the district of Medoc, the varietal is the key component of blended wines that also may include some Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and even Malbec and Petit Verdot. Moving slightly south, Cabernet Sauvignon meets Merlot in roughly equal proportions in the red wines of Graves. In both of these Bordeaux regions, the top bottles...
