Château Léoville Barton, Saint-Julien 2010, France
Tasting Note: A red-fruit-dominated red Bordeaux that displays some concentrated notes of minerality and is delightful without being boring.
Deep-intensity ruby in color, this wine has a nose of red cherry, rhubarb and violet with notes of clove baking spice.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus bodied red blend delivers dominating flavors of blackberry and cassis.
The wine has well-integrated, medium-plus tannin and medium-plus acidity that ultimately completes with a long finish.
