For those who say that Bordeaux has gotten crazy over priced, look no further than this wine which is a great value. It is a blend of 49% Merlot, 43% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Cabernet Franc. Purple in color, mostly opaque and shimmering bright in the glass. The nose has black cherries, some chocolate and slight cigar box. Medium bodied. Wispy tannins. On the palate, this is tasty. Black cherries, some black raspberries with some underlying char and a bit of chocolate. Good finish but there is some heat. This is drinking well but still could use a bit of air. Drink over the next five to seven years. Nice on its own but better with food. Brisket would work well.
