Wonderfully easy drinking blend that was very nice out of the bottle. After it was allowed to breathe, open up into a real treat. Smooth, fruity with nice tannins that wont hurt the budget.

Dark purple color. Aromas of black and fruit and spice. Palate displays ripe jammy fruit, toasted oak, almost a burnt flavor, somewhat tannic, combined with heavy spice. Finish is medium. It says Rothschild on the label but not one of their best. Pass.

Not very complex but easy drinking blend of 70% merlot, 30% cab Sauvignon. balanced between fruitiness and tannins.

Enjoyable Bordeaux. 55% Sauvignon blanc which comes through with some grapefruit. Smooth. Would buy again.
