2005 Chateau Cantenac Brown Margaux

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2004 Vintage) Black cherry, licorice and menthol aromas. A supple, pliant midweight from nicely ripe fruit. Features firm minerality, sweet tannins and good length but could use more personality.

    Deep ruby color with some rim variation. Complex and enticing nose of blackberries, concentrated cherries, cassis, meat drippings, and chocolate. Flavors of the same with coffee grounds and mild old. Long, lingering finish with medium-low tannins, medium acids, low alcohol. Ready to drink now but could cellar for an additional 5 years. Paired perfectly with red meat. Benefits from short decanting.
