Tart red fruit, minerals, and tea. Short finish. Seems to be drinking well now.

Great wine. Red and black fruit up front and minerals and cocoa in the middle. Not a big fruit bomb, very well balanced. I think that this is drinking well now.

Really not enjoyable or promising. Lands with a thud on the palate... no acidity, flavor, or aroma, just soupy extract.

Early autumn gathering with friends: What a treat. Dark ruby. Nose of blackberry, macerated fruits, cedar. Amazing fruit quality is quite apparent on the palate where intense favors of blackberry and plum are balanced by secondary flavors of tobacco and pencil. The finish goes on and on with that amazing fruit coming back later. This seems to just be entering it's drinking window. One of those wines that remains etched in the mind.

    It just so happened that everyone brought fairly young wines. For my palate, the California Cabs and Syrah as a general rule drink pretty well with 3-15 years of age. (Though certainly exceptions) The Pontet-Canet was definitely consumed too young.

Apple, hint of anise and lemon. Oak, but not obtrusive at all. Medium to long finish. Very nice wine. A nice summer white with enough complexity to keep things quite interesting.

Went through 4 bottles of this with large group at a steakhouse. Decanted and poured. Very nice dark ruby. Expressive nose with dark berry, vanilla and cigar. Palate seems fairly complex to me at this early stage, with a well balanced attack of great tasting fruit, coffee, and cigar. Slightly drying tannins which seem to mute the fruit a touch and medium finish. This went very well with the steaks and represents a good value at retail. Should be better in a few more years.
