Wine: Chateau Pontet-Canet 2008
Region: Pauillac, Bordeaux
Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot
Plenty of brooding black berries with a good overcoat of tannins and a full and generous finish. The classic hint of cigar box, pencil shavings and sweet spice follow through the concentrated fruit.
Ideal with red meat. Be sure to decant an hour before serving.
