Rather aged - earthy and leathery. Some nice, but faded, fruit still. A soft finish - very earthy. Well aged. Still a decent wine, but getting rather mature.

Subtle aromas of blackberry and vanilla. Medium- to full-bodied, with a solid core of silky tannins. Long and caressing. Very fresh, almost tart. An estate going places. Best after 2009. 12,500 cases made. (JS) Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2000 Brane-Cantenac 750ml

Fully mature and very attractive, the 2000 Brane Cantenac, which started a succession of brilliant wines from this famous estate in the Margaux appellation, has a dark plum/ruby/purple color, a sweet, juicy nose of blue, red, and black fruits, and a hint of damp earth as well as subtle herbs. Spicy, round, complex, very lush, and at its plateau of maturity, this wine should continue to drink well for another 10-15 years at minimum. This is Margaux elegance and silkiness at its very best.

(Barrel tasting) Bright plum and raspberry character throughout. Full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a velvety, caressing finish. New name for me. One to watch.

Impressive aromas of plums and earth in this one. Medium-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a smoky, berry aftertaste. Best after 2005.

Cantenac is a reasonably priced St.-Emilion, a commodity that is increasingly difficult to find. While not complex, it is a fruit-driven, fat, ripe, in-your-face effort that will provide tasty drinking over the next 5ndash;6 years.
