2000 Le Forts de Latour

A deep purple wine fading to a paler rim with legs. It has medium intensity aromas of blackcurrant, ripe black plum, vegetal, cedar, licorice, black cherry, with hints of smoke and earthy. It is dry with medium acidity, alcohol and soft and ripe tannin. Quite high intensity (which is a surprise) flavours of blackcurrant, cedar, vegetal with trace of earth and oak. Quite long length with vanilla finish (92)
