Nothing there. For the first time in my life I wanted more alcohol in a wine.

Light and earthy. Nothing special but nice for the price.

This is an inexpensive old world Bordeaux with improbably good taste and finish for the price. Good fruit and structured enough to do well with red meat and barbecue.

Not for me...doesn't really taste like a Bordeaux to me. Tastes like a dry cab.

Mild spice on nose. Ripe fruit: cherry, blueberry. Just enough going on to be interesting. A little glycerine that I like with southern Rhone, but isn't ideal with this one. Light mouthfeel feels more like a pinot. Some finish. Quaffable. Cheap red drinkers should love it, especially at $12.99.

Super tight, acidic and tart. Pleasant nose, earthy and vegetable. No finish.

Not the most complex thing on the planet, but it's balanced and rewarding: a total winner for a $12 Bordeaux. Feels more right bank, despite having slightly more CS than Merlot (43%, 40%, 17% CF). Chocolatey cherry fruit and cedar on the nose, with sundried tomato and green pepper coming with swirling. On the palate the body is light, brisk and grabby, and very nice cherry fruit lays on the tongue, a little luxurious with the lingering tannins and chocolatey roundness of the finish. This far outclasses its price tag, and I would definitely buy again.
