Nose is rich and complex, and morphs over time. Intense cherry candy/syrup, blueberry pie and baking spice, pencil shavings and cigar box, and some bell pepper. Medium body, med+ acidity, medium tannins and a moderate finish. Everything is in balance and overall this is a very pretty and harmonious bottle. Look forward to stashing a few and coming back throughout the next few years.

Black cherry, with toasty oak, cigar box and forest floor. Smooth and supple. Good structure and backbone. $18 at Trader Joe's. Great QPR. Stock up.

Yep, that's a Trader Joe's snag. Jaded me expected a fruity and simple style, knowing nothing about this château. Turns out its pretty traditional with good herbal cut and a touch of funk on the palate. Lovely along side our cheesesteaks last night.

Man this is just so good. Forest floor, mushroom, a lot of deliciousness. An unmistakable Bordeaux. Had a rough day so thought would pop this open. This is one of these hidden little gems you discover. Like stumbling across the lost city of Atlantis. Too good to be true.

Had the 2009 vintage in December 2018, paired with “pot au feu”for D’s BD. Was excellent appreciated by all the family.

Very, very good find from Trader Joe's. (At least according to my memory, the location of acquiring?) Would happily buy again for a meal with friendy

Stands up well to a rich pork loin. A touch astringent but nice blackberry hint; light finish

Wonderfully dry. Lots of blackberry, oak, a bit of spice on the finish. Medium body.
