Red fruit, cassis and spice on the nose These flavors continue across the palate with red fruit being complemented by star fruit and greenery. Simple but good, although the Cantenac Brown 2006 is slightly better!

Floral red fruit and kirsch aromas. Dark cherry fruit on the elegant palate. Smooth and easy-drinking. A very good wine with lots of pure fruit. I am smitten!

Opaque ruby with paler rims. Medium intensity black cherry and liquorice nose, rather simple. Medium+ acidity, medium tannin level. Medium+ body and medium intensity black cherry, liquorice, herbaceous and violet palate. Medium length of acceptable quality. Suitable to drink now but can improve further.

I can't say enough about how beautifully classic, racy, and gracious the wines of Brane Cantenac have become over the last decade. The stunningly elegant 2006 exhibits a sweet, subtle smoke note intermixed with creme de cassis in its medium-bodied style with superb nobility, concentration, and sweet tannin. Possessing a complex, luscious personality with strikingly beautiful, velvety tannins, it should be at its finest between 2012-2025+. Displays plum jam and currant bush on the nose. Full-bodied, with sweet, ripe fruit, soft, round tannins and a long finish. Slightly loose knit at the moment, but will come together with bottle age. Builds on your palate. Needs time. Best after 2013. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 10,830 cases made. -JS

New owner, Syrian Simon Halabi, has instituted a severe selection process (only 35% of the production was utilized), resulting in what may be the finest Cantenac-Brown I have ever tasted.

An unnerving vintage for Bordelais vignerons, with violent storms and a July heat wave, but a cool August. Surprisingly (perhaps due to meticulous selection at harvest), fully ripe, expressive grapes turned into wines similar to the house's 2005 vintage. Reticent at this point but with classic floral Margaux notes on the nose and a lithe, medium-bodied palate evolving into rounded tanninc structure. There is a lingering impression that offers fresh, black cherry and dark, wooded vanilla with good purity and nice density. Second Growth Classification, 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, and 4% Cabernet Franc. Spent 18 months in barrique, 30% new.
