Château Fontenil Fronsac Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

...the 2005 Fontenil has an opaque, thick ruby/purple color. Dense plum, black cherry, blackberry and cassis fruit jump from the glass of this full-bodied, terrific Fronsac, which is one of the appellation's stars of the vintage. Long, rich, young, and capable of lasting another 15-20 years, this is one of the candidates for Wine of the Vintage in Fronsac... Robert Parker

Tart, plush blueberries, chocolate and med + acid. Slight earth, but certainly earth driven. Some oak appreciated on the nose. Opened up over hours.

Extra dark and fruit forward with distinct plum and cherry notes and a long finish. Very nice Fronsac wine. 91
