Tasting Notes

A flavorful, savory Latour, without a great deal of density or power, the 1997 exhibits sweet, walnut-tinged, black currant fruit intertwined with minerals and subtle wood. Nicely-textured, with adequate acidity, ripe tannin, and a medium-bodied finish, this smooth effort should drink well for 12-14 years.

Score: 89

…Will be a surprisingly fine wine….It possesses more tannin and depth than most 1997's along with medium to full body… Sweet jammy fruit is intertwined with dried herbs, coffee, and earth in this saturated ruby/purple colured wine

Score: 90 - 91
