Chateau Siran 2006
|Grape||Bordeaux Blend, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot|
Dark garnet with a loamy soil nose intermixed with leather, graphite, and some tobacco leaf as well as black currants, this wine is spicy, medium-bodied, but finishes with some austere and slightly astringent tannins. Give it several years of bottle age and drink it over the following 10-15 years.
Winespectator / James Suckling (87)
There's some berry and mineral character, with a steely note. Medium-bodied, with chewy, slightly austere tannins and a hollow midpalate. Bottle age will fill the hole a bit.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 17/20 points.
