2014 Château Tronquoy-Lalande  (St. Estèphe) 91

Classic in a good way, the tobacco laden wine offers cassis, olives, and spice. Tannic, and holding most of its quality in reserve at the moment, let it rest for at least 5 years, and this should be a much better wine. Made from a blend of 56% Merlot, 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc, the wine reached 13.7% alcohol.
