Château la Tour Carnet Red Bordeaux Blend Haut-Médoc 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins and a long finish. Solid and balanced, with pretty tannins. A polished young wine."-J.S. Wine Spectator. Robert Parker says, "The finest wine made here since the 2005, the 2009 (a blend of 53% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot) was harvested between September 29 and October 22. Its dense purple color is followed by abundant aromas of camphor, charcoal, barrique, blackberries, and creme de cassis. Dense, structured, and full-bodied with high, but sweet, well-integrated tannins, and tremendous precision as well as freshness, this 2009 should evolve for 20-25 years.
