Chateau La Tour Carnet Haut-Medoc 2004 - As expected, this La Tour Carnet has very ripe cedar fruits on the nose inflected with hints of damson and tobacco. It has noticeable new oak at this juncture. The palate is full-bodied with chewy tannins, bold, black fruits, lots of oak with a grippy finish that is just lacking a little freshness and personality. Technically correct, but somehow, lacking passion. Drink 2010-2016. Tasted November 2008.
