K&L Notes

65% Cabernet, 29% Merlot, 5.5% Cab Franc, 0.5% Petit Verdot. Exotic, sexy, oriental spices on the nose with rich middle fruit flavors. Round and lush. Great wine. As good as their 2000.

    For those of you wishing for the days when Pontet-Canet was selling for less than $100, this is your wine. I decanted it for two hours, and the wine was still tight but starting to express itself. By the end of the tasting the wine was showing fantastically. The nose is beautiful, with licorice, cassis, mineral and some lingering oak spice. The ripe cassis and blackberry dominate the palate along with graphite and resin. This ripe black fruit and spice continue through onto the long finish. The fleshy mouthfeel is fairly integrated with some tannins evident on the finish.
