A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc.
A beautiful, deep garnet color. A nose full of red fruits, mixed with spices and toast. A forward elegance which evolves in the mouth making room for a very round tannic structure. A powerful finale with beautiful tannins and aromatic touches of cherry and vanilla.
"I can’t say enough about how beautifully classic, racy, and gracious the wines of Brane Cantenac have become over the last decade. The stunningly elegant 2006 exhibits a sweet, subtle smoke note intermixed with creme de cassis in its medium-bodied style with superb nobility, concentration, and sweet tannin. Possessing a complex, luscious personality with strikingly beautiful, velvety tannins, it should be at its finest between 2012-2025+."
The Wine Advocate
"Deep red. Scented, complex nose melds currant, flowers, tobacco, smoke and chocolate mint. Sweet, smooth and mellow but with juicy acidity giving the wine balance and vinosity. Finishes with sweet tannins and subtle persistence. Showing well today."
International Wine Cellar
"Displays plum jam and currant bush on the nose. Full-bodied, with sweet, ripe fruit, soft, round tannins and a long finish. Slightly loose knit at the moment, but will come together with bottle age. Builds on your palate. Needs time. Best after 2013. Tasted twice, with consistent notes."
