La Tour Carnet 93js 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"A wine with dark berry, licorice and tar character. Subtle and silky. Lovely polished tannins and fresh acidity....92-93" JS 04/11 "From their 180 acres, this large estate fashioned a blend of 53% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon and small quantities of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Harvested over a three week period (September 29 - October 17), it is a big, tannic, nearly over-sized wine boasting a dense purple color along with notes of graphite, blueberries, black raspberries and spring flowers. Great fruit on the attack, a powerful, full-bodied mouthfeel and an unusually masculine, muscular style suggest this 2010 will require patience, but it could turn out to be one of the finest La Tour Carnets ever produced. ...92-94" WA 05/11 "This has good grip from the start, with a graphite underpinning to the dark plum sauce, linzer torte and black currant fruit. The finish is long and well-structured. Very solid....89-92 (BT)" WS Web Only 2011
