2009 Côte Montpezat "Cuvée Compostelle" Côtes de Bordeaux
This sports a ripe, direct beam of plum cake and fig sauce backed by lively tobacco and toasty spice notes that linger easily through the finish. Drink now through 2013.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This relatively fat, fruit-laden, heady wine possesses low acidity and notes of ripe blackberries and cassis. An endearing, overtly modern styled red, it is meant to be drunk in its first 3-4 years of life.
*++V I am a huge fan of this wine. Spicy blackberry and blueberry aromas. Vibrant wine--a great crossover for California Cab drinkers. New wave but finely balanced with some earthy notes. Decant and enjoy with a t-bone steak. A value. (Clyde Beffa Jr, K&L Bordeaux Buyer)
