Cranberry and oak, but could be aged some more. Wonderfully thick and stood up to the Mexican food we paired it with.

I usually go for Loire Valley Sauvignon Blancs, but this is very good. The Semillon gives it a nice long finish and body

Not bad for the price, may have been slightly past its prime. But also 7 years old, so might've just been the dip many Bordeaux see around that age. Nice spice, good flavors, just a bit dulled.

Smoky old leather on first taste, mellows a bit but no fruit at all. Helps to have it with rich food. 2011 vintage

A great balance of fruit, tannins, and dryness. I recommend it.
