About

89-91

"Loads of blackberry and raspberry aromas follow through to a full-bodied palate with fine tannins and a long, caressing finish. - J.S." 89-91 Points - Wine Spectator

"A perennial value pick for smart consumers, Cap de Faugeres is fashioned by world-renowned oenologist, Michel Rolland. The 2005, which achieved 13.5% natural alcohol, is a forward concoction of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Its black/purple color is accompanied by sweet scents of incense, black tea, licorice, and subtle oak. Medium to full-bodied, opulent, and rich, it should drink well for a decade or more." - 88-90 Points - Robert Parker
