Much better from the bottle than from the barrel, the round textured, forward wine provides a plummy, licorice, espresso and dark cherry nose. Polished, lush, ripe fruits, licorice and espresso complete the experience.

Smoke, oak and sweet ripe fruits, with an open, forward, sweet, black cherry, vanilla character, that is ready to drink.

Oaky and modern, which is not a bad thing, but the wine is too oaky and too modern in his vintage as the wine is suffering from too much extraction with its dry, tart and green finish. 85-88 Pts

2009 Château La Tour Carnet  (Haut-Médoc) 92

Modern in style, this Merlot dominated, deeply colored wine opens with a perfume filled with coffee, licorice, black and blue fruit and chocolate. Concentrated, fleshy and flashy, produced from a blend of 53% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, this delicious Haut Medoc needs a few years before the oak fully integrates.

From a blend of 52% Merlot and 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine is still on the oaky side with coffee bean, vanilla, licorice and black cherry notes in the aromatics. Soft, round and forward, while not complex, it's fun and already easy to drink.

Dark in color, this powerful wine offers pungent aromas of blackberry, cassis, truffle, earth, tobacco, coffee and blue fruit. Ripe, tannic and a little rustic, this robust, Bordeaux wine needs at least another 5-8 years in the cellar before it softens and comes together.

Not much in the way of elegance. But there is gobs of fruit as well as tannin. Give this beast at least 10-15 years before popping a bottle.

2004 Château La Tour Carnet  (Haut-Médoc) 88

Still oaky, with licorice, tobacco and black fruits. Round textured and easy to drink, this is probably not going to get much better with age.
