A highly rated Bordeaux blend that came off as flat to me. No clear fruit flavors and a dry finish.

Big bad Bordeaux, heavy and dark with loads of flavour for such a young wine. The nose is not hugely powerful but it is a nice combination of oak, cedar, menthol and spiced fruits. On the palate and after opening for an hour, this is almost creamy in texture, like a blackcurrant, plum and tobacco pie. There is tannin and acidity but they are balanced and allow this wine to be enjoyed young but I am sure in 10 years and once mature, this will be outstanding.

Feeling this wine! Very dark color. Playful, complex nose. Not overly tannic. Drinking well so young. 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. $33 for half bottle at Total Wine. Get more of this! There is a second wine, Angelique de Monbousquet.

Barrel Sample, what a wine! This will be a great buy in 2016 Bordeaux. Don't miss it! 93-95pts
