This has been one of the best values in Bordeaux and continues to be.  Great showing for the money.  Purple in color.  The nose is tight at first but then opens to cherries and dark cherries.  It starts out bitter and tannic, but with some air, the cherry and dark cherry fruit explode.  Nice depth.  Some oak but integrated.  Good finish.  Right now it could use a decant.  It will continue to improve for a decade or more.  $30.
