We especially loved Stephen Tanzer's review of the wine:
Complex, enticing aromas of black raspberry, licorice, minerals, bitter chocolate, lead pencil and pungent cedar; just this side of exotic. Wonderfully silky, sweet and thick, with a powerful minerality framing the currant, graphite and spice flavors. This boasts superb inner-mouth energy and great length, with the full, ripe tannins totally enrobed by the wine's mid-palate richness.
Enjoy Chateau Pontet-Canet Pauillac with filet mignon, Charolais beef, ratatouille, and cheeses.
