January Wednesday Wine Committees are always a great as the red wines are required to be 11yrs old, making all of the reds 2008 vintage. 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine were served today, all blind.

My guess here was right bank Bordeaux, assuming there had to be some cab franc here (though chinon was what a few of us wanted to call it). Thin and laced with green pepper and pipe tobacco. Red and black fruits were secondary. Almost tart too.

Goes down easily and with a lot of fruit. Enjoyable but not fantastic.
