Chateau la Tour Carnet Haut-Medoc 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

"Like most recent vintages have been, the 2004 La Tour Carnet is a big time sleeper of the vintage. Owned by Bordeaux visionary Bernard Magrez, this chateau is fashioning beautifully structured wines with superb concentration and intensity. The deep ruby/purple-hued 2004 offers up beautiful aromas of flowers, creme de cassis, smoke, and pain grille. Medium to full-bodied with excellent purity, low acidity, and moderately high tannin, this stunning effort should be at its peak between 2011-2024+."Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (90 points)*

This wine has a fair amount of merlot, almost a 50/50. This wine tastes like a classic St. Julian. I recommend decanting 4 hours+, and the magic begins, as the first 1+ hour is closed. Perfume of flowers, spice,sandal wood, bright and dark red fruits, dry, but complex, with long length. Full yet retains finesse and much class. Sleeper of the vintage. Great juice here.
