Chateau du Tertre Bottle 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"This blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot is somewhat closed, with high acidity and noticeable austerity. The color is a healthy dark ruby/purple and the wine exhibits notes of damp earth, tobacco leaf, sweet and sour cherries and loamy soil undertones. Drink it over the next decade."*-Wine Advocate**We will notify you on arrival Summer 2014*

This is really well done with soft tannins and berry, cherry and chocolate character. Full body, with round tannins. This year has more Cabernet Franc with 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot, and 10% Petit Verdot. James Suckling. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Du Tertre 6000ml
