2013 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc (Previously $27)
Pretty blackberry and blueberry character with medium to full body, fine tannins and a fresh finish.
Good fresh red and black fruits, some depth and class. An elegant southern Médoc.
Pure and refined fruit - combines a crunchy fresh style with riper, more cooked elements. Light on the palate, and finishes without incident, but this has a good honesty about it, and is a very pleasant drink.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
An elegant, attractive wine, with a dark ruby color, red and black currant fruit and dusty, loamy soil undertones, this mid-weight, stylish red doesn’t have much substance or body, but is quite well-made and clearly represents an intelligent option in 2013, where extraction and power couldn’t be achieved because of the difficult conditions. (RP)
The 2013 Cantemerle is quite tasty. Soft and nicely layered on the palate, the 2013 is laced with expressive dark red and black stone fruits, savory herbs, new leather and spices. A long, energetic finish rounds things out nicely. (AG)
Damson plum and pomegranate notes glide through, with a light sandalwood spine and a twinge of savory on the finish.
