BOW (7)

Parker (87)

I generally find Cantenac-Brown too tough-textured, tannic, and dry. Therefore, I am happy to say the 1996, while tannic, looks to be one of the better balanced efforts to emerge from this estate. The color is a deep ruby/purple. The wine offers simple but pleasing aromas of black currants, licorice, and vanillin. In the mouth, it is medium to full-bodied, powerful, muscular, somewhat foursquare, but mouthfilling and rich.

Winespectator / James Suckling (85)

Some good berry and tobacco character, but slightly lean in fruit concentration in the center-palate. Medium-bodied, with medium tannins and a short finish.
