This wine won’t improve anymore with age. It’s 50% Merlot and 50% Cab. The wine is typical with cassis and plum. I believe this wine from other vintages or with more youth would be pretty lackluster but this was a good effort. — 3 years ago

3.5. Just the way a good Bordeaux should taste. Complex but smooth, with a lovely lingering aftertaste. On sale from a pretty French woman selling her vintage at Calvert-Woolley. On sale for $21.99, regularly $24.99. — 4 years ago
