Chateau Castera Medoc 2010
Beautiful garnet-red colour with cherry tint. Brilliant and limpid. Nose is neat with a good intensity. Very fresh, red fruits, spices and fresh almond. A nice touch of undergrowth.
The attack is supple evolving towards a pleasant tannic structure. It is a hearty, round
wine. The finish is long with cherry and mint aromas. It is a very pleasant wine dominated by fruit and freshness.

Wine EnthusiastFirm, dark and finely tannic, this has weight and richness, with a severity that dominates the fruitiness. It's dry and tough, and it's aging potential is questionable.
Wine AdvocateStrawberry, cherry, herbs, saddle leather and licorice are all present in this soft, round, easygoing, mid-weight wine, which is meant for consumption over the next 3-4 years.
