Pauillac de Latour 2014
Medium to deep garnet colored, the 2014 Le Pauillac de Château Latour leaps from the glass with raspberry pie, kirsch and blackberry preserves scents followed by more serious notions of cigar box, tilled soil, fallen leaves and blackcurrant pastilles. Medium-bodied, refreshing and mineral laced, with a chewy frame, it has plenty of savory layers and an herbal lift on the finish. The blend here is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot.

Château Latour's 2014 Pauillac is delicate, refined and super-polished, with brilliant fruit, expressive aromatics and lifted aromatics. This is an especially strong showing for the château's third wine. Rose petal and savory herb notes shade into the expressive, gracious finish. The Pauillac will drink well to age 15 or 20. Drink between 2019-2029

51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot. 26% of production. Very dark crimson. Light and fleshy on the nose. With a hint of excellent oak (sample from old oak). Round and floral. Very forward. A real charmer. Fine tannins and light acidity. Lingers in the mouth even though it’s not that powerful. Pretty snazzy. Drink between 2018-2025.
