This is a very solid wine with tannins that are very firm and dense. There is power without excessive alcohol lending a classic feel and a pure line from fruit acidity and tannin. The result is as much about fruit as structure. Wine Enthusiast.

The seriously endowed 2012 Las Cases exhibits a dense purple color as well as surprisingly sweet tannin and a forwardness that one does not normally find at this address. Medium to full-bodied with beautiful black currant graphite crushed rock and subtle oaky notes it possesses lots of minerality and precision impressive power a rich mid-palate (which sets it apart from other St.-Juliens) and a long finish. It appears this beauty will be drinkable in 5-6 years and last for 25 or more.

Displays a solid core of plum blackberry and cassis lined with roasted apple wood and backed by a hint of ganache and briar. Shows excellent integration overall with a serious iron note buried on the finish. A rock-solid version for this vintage.
