Pretty and light bodied, extremely so to the point of almost washed out. Dusty cherry, leather, earth flavors take some coaxing to reveal themselves. a nice enough glass after it builds some body with air

Color of purple mixed with ruby. On the rim the color fades away. Nose is quite marginal with leather, sugarplum, hot spice. Taste is blank in the beginning. After a few moments, flavors like chocolate, leather, subtle acidity and mild sweetness, dark cherry, and raisin show up. Still quite watery, but with powerful tannins. Aftertaste is a bit bittersweet, and sulfate. Nothing too exciting. I know the price is low, but I do expect more.

Proof that you can have a tasty French Bordeaux at a reasonable price ($13). Although it's not super complex, it's true to its "French style" in that it's more earthy than fruit forward, it's has a medium body with subtle, well integrated tannins, and it's lower in alcohol at 13%. This was very enjoyable, especially at this price point. Enjoy a bottle all to yourself, or confidently bring it to a casual dinner to share with friends. Good stuff!

Cherry, iron, black currant, burnt cinders, tannins. Really good value.

Classic Bordeaux scents: plum, black cherry, green peppers, tobacco, and forest floor. Palate is dark fruit driven, with peppercorn spice. Medium body and length. Great QPR. Drink now - 2020.
