TASTING NOTES

A tannic and savory red with currant, blackberry and stone character. Full body, chewy texture and a fresh finish. Bright acidity. Iodine, oyster shell and black currant.

Dark red cherries, plums, smoke and tobacco meld together gracefully in the 2013 Les Forts de Latour. Layered, supple and caressing on the palate, this is one of the juicier 2013s readers will come across. With its expressive floral and spiced notes, the soft, resonant finish is especially appealing. The blend is 62.7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35.1% Merlot and 2.2% Petit Verdot.
