The final blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon and 22% Merlot has resulted in a wine of great power, stature, gravitas and density. The wine has a black purple color and a brilliant nose of scorched earth, creme de cassis, espresso roast, blackberries, truffles and licorice. Full-bodied, extremely powerful, yet with abundant sweet tannin, this stunning effort should prove sensational if given 7-10 years of cellaring. It should also last for 30-40 years.
Deep purple-ruby. Reticent but nuanced nose hints at cassis, brown spices and smoky herbs. Lush and seamless in the mouth, with lovely precision if not palate-busting concentration to the red cherry, blackcurrant, cocoa and underbrush flavors. Really spreads out on the palate and vibrates on the long, aromatic aftertaste. A wine of sneaky concentration and depth, it's a bit more youthfully closed today than usual for Saint-Pierre at this stage, but it still has the ttypical drink-me-soon appeal of this chateau. I'd forget about it in the cellar for another six or eight years and drink it from 2018 through 2035. Should be an excellent value.
A new-wood-dominated wine, this is very toasty and extracted, and it is losing some of its fruit in the process. It has a fine structure that will fill out when the black currant flavor gets a chance to shine. Keep for 4–5 years.
