Château Brane-Cantenac Margaux Grand Cru Classé
Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines65% Cabernet Sauvignon; 30% Merlot; 5% Cabernet Franc. Having read very positive reviews of this wine, we must admit to real disappointment with our sample. Its slightly thin aromas of cherries and dried brush are singularly lacking in richness, and its frontal, less-than-fruity flavors fall right in line. Aging may bring forth the depth we cannot see now, but we are comfortable in letting others take the risk.
