La Tour de Mons 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

93-94 Points, James Suckling: "Dense and chewy with very firm and silky tannins. Full-bodied and powerful. Better than the 2015." 04/17 Wine Spectator: "Light cocoa powder and tobacco accents line the core of crushed plum and cherry preserve flavors. A toasty edge holds sway on the finish." 4/17

This assertive red delivers bold flavors with crisp texture offering bright black cherry and pomegranate notes over firm tannins. Orange zest acidity carries this through the juicy finish. Drink now through 2020. -TM Wine Spectator.

Aromas and flavors of currants coffee and chocolate follow through to a medium body with firm tannins and a fruity finish. A little subdued. Better in 2016. James Suckling.
