Critic Notes

A classified growth that remains somewhat under-the-radar (especially in 2003), La Tour Carnet’s 2003 is made primarily from Cabernet Sauvignon blended with small percentages of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The dark ruby/plum color is followed by a rich, lush, round, fully mature wine with low acidity, ripe fruit and a classic Bordeaux character. Drink this outstanding effort over the next decade.

Score: 90-/100Robert Parker

Round and velvety with lots of berry and cherry character and toasted oak. Full-bodied, with lovely texture and a medium finish. A tiny bit more on the finish would push it to outstanding. Yummy wine. Best after 2008. 14,165 cases made. James Suckling, Wine Spectator 2006

Score: 89-/100Wine Spectator
