2010 Château Caronne Ste. Gemme  (Haut-Médoc) 87

There is a strong herbaceous quality to the dark fruits and rustic tannins that some tasters are going to like much more than others. The dusty, crisp, fruit in the finish is the best part of the experience. The wine was produced from a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot. 87 Points
