Medium to deep garnet colored, the 2014 Le Pauillac de Château Latour leaps from the glass with raspberry pie, kirsch and blackberry preserves scents followed by more serious notions of cigar box, tilled soil, fallen leaves and blackcurrant pastilles. Medium-bodied, refreshing and mineral laced, with a chewy frame, it has plenty of savory layers and an herbal lift on the finish. The blend here is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot.
51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot. 26% of production. Very dark crimson. Light and fleshy on the nose. With a hint of excellent oak (sample from old oak). Round and floral. Very forward. A real charmer. Fine tannins and light acidity. Lingers in the mouth even though it’s not that powerful. Pretty snazzy. Drink between 2018-2025.
