Dark berries, spices and new leather. Good structure, but somewhat underwhelming. Not very impressed with this, given the producers pedigree and all...

What a great Bordeaux wine, classic in many facets, it exhibits plenty of youthful charm. Color: A dark red to purple core, with deep red to lighter red edges. Nose: Black and red cherries, cassis, spice, licorice and sweet tobacco. Palate: The cherries and cassis unfold on the palate with a beam of bright acidity and snappy acidity. very complex, still an easy 5 years of youth and 15 years of life to go.

In a great spot now. Deep, dark, a little brooding but when pushed, here it comes -- cassis, black cherry and a rich blackberry aroma, confirmed on the palate. Full bodied. Nice length. The bottle holds up over several hours, and was great with a steak after the tasting. Open and enjoy.

Medium bodied, black-currant and oak, good tannins, classic and long finish, very nice but not the best Pontet Canet.

Spicy young nose, fruit and earthy undertones are overpowered by alcohol. Taste was nice after allowing to air for some time, earthy and spicy with some fruitiness at the end. Very short finish. Mehhh but we still had a good time in the company of wine. We must be able to drink the good the bad and the ugly to truly learn

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
