Chateau Picque Caillou Rouge 2009 (4.2/5)
Notes: It appears deep ruby-purple with good tears. On the nose it's clean offering med+ intensity of old leather, tobacco, pencil lead and incense, interesting iron notes, on top of black cherries, brack currants and plums. Juniper berries and dark chocolate appear on the final. On the palate is dry, with med+ acidity, medium to medium+ fine (chocolate powder) tannins, medium alcohol, medium+ body and very good flavor intensity. Medium+ finish. Although woody and spicy notes are dominant with respect fruit, the wine has an overall complexity, balance and poise that make it really really enjoyable.
