Other Reviews....
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Latour Martillac bursts from the glass with bold cassis, chocolate-covered cherries and plum preserves scents followed up by smoked meats, violets and aniseed hints plus a waft of Provence herbs. Full-bodied, firm and fine-grained in the mouth, the palate is laden with juicy fruit and savory layers, finishing long and fragrant.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Wine Advocate

Dark plum and boysenberry compote notes are fleshy in feel, infused with dark tea, ganache and licorice accents. There's a smoldering hint through the finish. Intriguing.

James Molesworth - Wine Spectator

The blackberry and wet-earth character with some bark undertones, comes through clearly here. Medium-to full-bodied. Savory finish.

The 2018 Latour-Martillac is powerful, dense and explosive, with tremendous richness and energy that drive through to the palate staining finish. Abnormally low yields produced an unusually sumptuous, rich Latour-Martillac. Black cherry, chocolate, spice, gravel and incense build as this arrestingly beautiful wine shows off its racy, curvy personality. The blend is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot and 8% Petit Verdot. Tasted three times.
