Haut-Carles Red Bordeaux Blend Fronsac 2004

External Review by We Speak Wine:

A big time sleeper of the vintage, this superbly crafted Fronsac boasts a dark ruby/purple color as well as notes of wet steel, crushed rocks, spring flowers, blueberries, and blackberries. Medium to full-bodied, deep, concentrated, and structured with 15 or more years of evolution possible, it is a stunning wine that sells for a song. - Robert Parker 90 Points Full deep ruby-red. Very ripe aromas of deep black fruits and smoky oak. Round, supple and sweet, with generous, pliant flavors of plum and smoke. Lush, easygoing wine, finishing with rich, broad tannins. - Stephen Tanzer 87 Points Attractive blackberry, mineral and vanilla aromas, with undertones of coffee. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a medium finish. Good effort for this vintage. Best after 2010. 1,250 cases made. –JS - Wine Spectator Magazine 87 Points ** Only 16 in Stock **
