Delicious Christmas Day Bordeaux. Modern style with higher alcohol and loads of dark fruit. Deep rich red in the glass and lively aromas of fruit, leather, oak and vanilla. Palate is vibrant and layered, initially bold but smoothing out in the mouth. A little acidic early on but an hours air really settles this wine down. Very enjoyable and perfect to enjoy over a long, lazy day.

In the glass, the wine has a glistening, dark royal purple color, almost black in the center, with flashes of magenta just at the edge. The classic Right Bank nose unfurls gradually with aromas of sun-warmed black raspberries, griotte cherries, and sweet white tobacco moving in and out of the foreground, sometimes alternating with Dutch cocoa, eucalyptus, and vanilla as the wine evolves in the glass.

On entry, the wine is luscious and succulent, building to a rich, juicy mid-palate, with a cornucopia of black and red fruit flavors that echo the nose, all lightly seasoned with toasted coconut, baker’s chocolate, and red berry acidity, and the long, elegant finish is punctuated with sinuous, fine-grained, dusty tannins. Drink now – 2027. — Moore Brothers Wine Company

Muscular St. Emilion. 3% Malbec and 1% Carmenere brings dark berry sensations to this full bodied and great value gem.

Ripe fruit, right amount of tannin, I like it!
