Very good, budget-minded Bordeaux. Perfect w grilled filet. Even stood up to a vinegar chimichurri.
Feels more of Cabernet family than merlot, with slightly leafy dark fruit and a hint of herbal undertone. Drinking great now at age 9.

Lovely, lean and elegant style. Decidedly old school Bordeaux on a budget.

Oh hell, I had a shitty Bordeaux earlier tonight which made me embarrassed for being being someone who says "Bordeaux can be exceptional....when it is". But I felt good about this guy. Very good!

Restrained and tight fisted. Very old school Bordeaux. Recommended as a good example of the style and vintage thought not a super star.

2008 tasted old. Perhaps should breath longer before tasting. Betterthe next day.
Ei liian täyteläinen, kevyehkö, karvaisa jälkimaku, tynnyrin aromit, vanha

Good value-for-money Bordeaux. Pencil, bit of tar, soft but enjoyable.

Perusbordöö, juuri sellainen kuin klassisen hyvän bordöön olettaa olevankin, hyvä pöytäpunkku
