    November 15, 2014 - Rich, structured Cabernet with active yet smooth tannins. Very nice dark fruit with powerful notes of tobacco, mint and chocolate. Must decant for at least an hour to fully enjoy this wine and expect it to develop over the next 10 years.

    September 16, 2014 - looking at all the 90+ scores for this wine I'm wondering of I had an off bottle. There was nothing youthful or sweet about it. I've had a lot of Latour over the years and this was a bit flat and dull. I hope this was just that. An off bottle.
