Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Le Pauillac de Château Latour, a blend of 54.6% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38.9% Merlot and 6.5% Petit Verdot, comes barreling out of the glass with exuberant notes of ripe black cherries, blackberry pie and blackcurrant pastilles, followed by hints of menthol, iodine, damp earth and tree bark, plus a faint medicinal waft. The medium-bodied palate is coated with juicy black fruits and loads of earthy/minty sparks, supported by soft tannins and a racy backbone, finishing long and lifted.
