About

90

This shows firm tannins and a dense structure that comes from the Malbec and Petit Verdot in the blend. It is full and spicy, with a flavor of black plum juice and a round texture on the finish. It's likely to age well over at least six years.

Product Description:

"The name of the Estate comes from two words from Old-French and Latin: Puy (mound) and Castera (camp/fortress). The Estate follows the old Medoc tradition with the vineyard mostly featuring Cabernet-Sauvignon. Chateau Puy Castera wines are remarkable for their aromas and are rich in tannins. This is the reason why they are slightly aggressive when they are young but their charm and flavors mature with age. This aging gives them the delicacy of a fine Haut-Medoc." -Importer
