Wonderful. Opened slightly leathery, but the fruit showed up after about a half hour in the decanter. Held its ground through dinner (roast beef.) Red berry fruit up front, some darker berry on mid-palate. Leather, brown spice and cedar running alongside.

The best Cantemerle in years, beautiful and rich, with a wonderful core of fruit. Pretty plum and berry aromas, with hints of tobacco and chocolate, lead to a full-bodied wine with loads of chocolate and berry character. Long, long aftertaste... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1996 Cantemerle 750ml
