Chateau Léoville Barton 1996

I tasted this wine blind in a set with the Baron 1996, and the Cos D'Estournel 1996.  It's pretty good and reminded me of a Coonawarra cabernet, but it did not set the world on fire.  The wine has an aroma of herbs, mint, black fruits, cigars and raisins.  The palate has notes of tobacco and some length.  (Abv 12.5%, Rating: Good to Very Good, Tasted: Jan 2011)
