One of my favorite Bordeaux yet. Not as earthy. Primarily a merlot mix. A smooth wine-- perfect as an everyday Bordeaux

Black currant, pepper, licorice! Medium to full body, + tannin! It's not a 2009 or 2010 but do the job!

Balanced and very drinkable. Some earthy funk with cherry and plum flavors.

Thought we got a good deal for $16. Too bad it tasted like a cheap $2 bottle from trader joes. Old and grape juicy.

Deep ruby with a brick rim. Ripe fruit, black currants, deep cherry. Licorice and pepper to give it some depth. Strong and gritty tannins.

Good everyday drinking wine.
Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blend.
Dark Ruby. Medium body, Good balanced, length & complexity. Medium acidity & well-rounded smooth tannins. Notes of black fruit: plum, cherry, blackberry with vanilla, cedar, smoke, licorice, black pepper.
Good wine but intensity is somewhat lacking.
