Winemaker's Notes:

"This is really excellent. Love the nose of minerals, violets and berries. Full body, with super fine tannins and a long, long finish. Slightly lean but seamless tannins...92-93" JS 04/12 "This wine is sleek, velvety, caressing even, with no angles at all, offering pure cherry preserves and floral notes, with a long, cassis-infused finish that expands nicely as this airs...91-94" WS 04/12 "One of the finest second wines now being made, Les Forts de Latour comes from the same parcel every year. The 2011 is composed of 61.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 38.5% Merlot. Forty-three percent of the Latour production was relegated to this cuvee. Its opaque purple color is accompanied by a big, sweet nose of creme de cassis, underbrush, licorice and incense. Medium to full-bodied, deep, fleshy and already appealing, this 2011 should gain complexity over the next 5-7 years, and last for 15-20...90-92" WA 04/12
