Château Talbot 2012
The blend is 59 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 36 % Merlot, and 5 % Petit Verdot. This is a very successful wine and should drink well for 15-20 years.
A juicy style of wine, Talbot’s 2012 has a dense ruby/purple color, plenty of black and red currant fruit, a touch of plum, soft tannin and a spicy, medium-bodied mouthfeel. It is excellent, with no hollowness or astringency. This is a very successful wine in this vintage and should drink well for 15-20 years.
