Tasting notes Neal Martin, May 2018

The 2017 La Tour Carnet is a blend of 60% Merlot, 37% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc picked between 21 September and 5 October, matured in 30% new oak barrel for 16 months. It needs some encouragement from the glass but eventually reveals scents of blackberry, boysenberry jam and a faint hint of orange rind. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly dry tannin that grip the mouth. There is fine purity and detail here, but it is resolutely linear and strict, and I find the finish needing a soupçon more fleshiness, just to offset the firmness of the tannins.
