Full Robust Reds from Pauillac
|Description:||The 2011 Carruades de Lafite is composed of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot and the rest "Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Soft berry fruit, underbrush, fresh herb and bay leaf characteristics as well as soft tannins, a velvety texture, and a medium-bodied, slightly superficial, but satisfying style suggest this 2011 should be consumed over the next 10-15 years." Wine Advocate (87-89) "This has a slightly grainy feel, with cedar and ground vanilla bean notes leading to layers of plum, cherry compote and lightly mulled currant fruit. A strong tobacco accent fills in on the finish, revealing a cedary echo at the very end. Best from 2016 through 2026." Wine Spectator, 90 points.|
