Black cherry nose. Medium earthy tones to taste. Paired well with steak. Celebrated paying off another student loan!

Garagiste selection. $16.72. Great value. Smooth tannins. 80% Merlot.

Black fruit, red currant, notes of game and mushroom, with mint and licorice on the finish. 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Nicely balanced. Enjoyable Bordeaux.

Classic, old world Bordeaux blend that provides a complex flavor profile. Sour cherries, cinnamon, tart blackberry, and a bit of leather.

Easier on the tongue than a Cabernet

Still quite young & fat, but thins out with some air. Gorgeous Cab Franc nose, but not as much spice on the tongue as I'd hoped. Well balanced & nice acids, would love to revisit this in a couple years -- definite potential.

Don't generally like blends but it tastes pleasant. The cab franc makes for a weird nose
