Fully yumtown. Total technical term. It is balanced as hell. The tannins belie the age tho I think in a few years this wine would merit “INTERESTING and also yummy” but right now it stops at yummy and I’m ok with that. Ripe berries: blue, black and rasp. Tannins that are not sooo aggressive yet could use a couple years. The alcohol and acid will stand. Realllllly enjoy this now—am picturing with a bread plate, nuts, dried fruit and a canapé mushroom...but in lieu of all that in youth I just say suck it down then worry about sustenance. All in all I’m into the Chateau Godeau Ducarpe.

About $10 at Costco - and would make you think about $50

Good just out of the bottle, a little hot. Will edit after about an hour or so. Decanting. Much better, I think I’ll buy more.
