WB Rating: 88

Alcohol by volume: 13.0%
Price at time of purchase: $0.00 (Library wine)
Type: Cabernet / Bordeaux

Classic, penetrating Cassis and smoky cedar Bordeaux nose and flavors. Good ripeness and youthful virility are there, but in the end the '95 Pontet-Canet came across in this tasting as fairly straightforward, lacking the extra layers of spice and perfume that might take it into the "extraordinary" classification. I have several more bottles of this wine so I'll give it a few more chances over the 15 years. - HK 2005-09-15
