Château Pontet Canet

Château Pontet-Canet

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

Celebrating with a couple of nice bottles tonight

2.5 hour decant(lots of chunky/fine/cloudy sediment). An astonishing dark purplish magenta color. On the nose: expressive notes of plum, cedar, worn leather, musky earth, floral, and smokey vanilla. Taste: smooth, creamy, rich wine with plum, cedar, tobacco wrapper, burnt earth, and a white pepper- strawberry-graphite long finish. YUM!! Comfortably in its drinking window(with decant) and more years to go.

Château Cadet-Pontet

St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

A bit funky on the nose from this bottle. Dusty notes, earth, salt, briny olive and olive tapenade from the Merlot base. Tons of acid still driving this backbone. 15.5%, this finish isn’t messing around. — 5 months ago

Dauphin de Grand-Pontet

St. Émilion Grand Cru 2016

Mushrooms, earth, truffle on the nose. More savory, smoked meats and charcuterie. Palate shows more bramble fruits, strawberry 14.5%

Give this lots of time to open up in the glass.

Sequoia Grove

Rutherford Bench Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

This was awesome! PnP’d. Very balanced wine. Medium plus depth. Integrated dark blue and black fruit with oak, vanilla, and cedar. Somewhat similar to Pontet Canet. Lovely silky texture and medium plus finish. Exactly how Napa Cab should taste! — 3 months ago

Neal Family Vineyards

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Neal never stops impressing!!! Would have guessed Bordeaux all the way. 1hr+ decant. Nose of dark cherries, cedar, and menthol. Blue and black fruit on the palate with well integrated alcohol. Medium depth and medium plus finish. Reminds me of Chateau Pontet-Canet but 1/5 of the price. Neal rocks!! — 7 months ago

Château Grand-Pontet

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Definitely a Christmas Day wine. Blackberry, currants, mulled spices that cling to the back of the tongue. Pair with pets for a German Shepherd around the ears to achieve this face 🥴. — 9 months ago
