We are together again sharing the 2009 Château La Tour Carnet on this Sunday night. A beautifully blended Bordeaux 62% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc.

On the nose there is black and red fruit, blackberry, black cherry, raspberry, black currant, chocolate, licorice, rose petal, graphite and earth.

The palate reveals wonderfully full dark fruit, blackberry, black cherry, raspberry, black currant, green bell pepper, mint, graphite and a mellow toasted vanilla.

This enjoyable medium to full bodied wine is smooth with a velvety mouth feel, a medium + acidity and medium + rounded tannins that lead to a long gratifying finish. What a way to start the new week with a gorgeous 2009 vintage wine from Bordeaux. This vintage continues to rock. And the wine is highly accessible now but can be cellared for another 5-8 years. Have a great coming week and please be safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Deep ruby
Slight olive aroma.
Black cherry, prune, fig --RIPE
Grippy tannins all around with acid keeping in check. Round mouthfeel- stronger than the other Bordeauxs in the flight but same placement and feeling.
Black cherry/plum retro.
Needs food.

This is nice. Plenty of ripe blackberries and dark fruits on the nose, some vanilla and prune as well. Lush and slightly velvet feel on the palette with pleasant gripping tannins and acidity at the end. Lingers quite long.
