The weekend before the 4th of July has crept up on us and I have opened a gift given to me from my oldest son from this past Christmas. The 2015 Château Fombrauge from St. Emilion. A Right Bank Bordeaux is a blend of 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc.

On the nose is very expressive black cherry, black plum, blackberry, black currant, chocolate, graphite, cedar box, vanilla, violets and faint oak.

The palate is a myriad of opulence with black cherry, blackberry, black plum, bell pepper, spices, black currant and graphite.

This wine is full bodied with a silky mouth feel, medium + acidity and medium + fine tannins that lead into a long beautiful black fruit finish. Have a wonderful weekend and please be safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷
