This wine shows typical Bordeaux flavors with Merlot in the lead.Smooth opening with berries and bitter chocolate and a finish that lingers. Medium body which invites the next sip. Nothing fancy but well made.

Drank 1/13/15. Good bordeaux for burgers or a casual experience.

Nose of plum and some underbrush. Relatively simple on the palate, with more red fruits, cherry, raspberry, some plum and a bit of spice. Light to medium body, with medium, well integrated tannins. A well constructed value Bordeaux.

3/21/7/4/3 + 50 = 88 pts.

Not a lot left on day 2. Probably not one to age.

My Pre New Years bottle. Light body, nose is fairly complex with a range of scents. Medium finish. Would love to enjoy with a steak. Thanks @Ken Z

Kind of tastes like a light Graves. Drinkable but with some of that mineral terroir.

Dry. Needs to breathe before drinking. More full bodied

2014v. Dark fruit (cherry and a little plum), a little cedar, and menthol on the nose. Dry fruit on the palette with a little graphite. High acidity with pretty soft tannins that coat and hang in the mouth, esp for a 65/35% merlot cab blend. On its own, it's a little blah but the fruit comes out more with food. I paired it with potroast. Maybe shell out a few bucks more to get something from Fronsac with a little more complexity. 13.5% ABV

Dark fruit baking spice to the nose. Still a little tight after 6 hours of decanting. Dark fruit baking spice citrus to the palette. Watery with a short finish. Light tannins makes me dubious about this wines ageabillity.
