Alliance Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

Great mountain fruit. Not sure of the make up on this blend, but it’s definitely predominantly cabernet. Decant this, it needs at least an hour to open up. — 8 months ago

Tasting pour. Interesting, but didn’t grab my attention or lure me back for a second pour like the Saxum JBV or Hammell. — a year ago
