Opens with red licorice whip, palate... this could of been aged on cedar planks... very disappointing, so much promise. Finish at least has a bit of star anise

One of the most beautiful reds I've had. Full of flavour and a lovely taste of the oak this is aged in. Perfect to sip or have with a meal. Will drink again and again.

Absolutely outstanding Bordeaux. Shows what the wine from the region can be and what it truly can express! Very old, yet very alive!

Just discovered 2014 as a wine to keep at home if you like Smooth, low tannin, soft Bordeaux. I drank it May 2017 and it could stand 5yr or more waiting. Need to air 40-50min. Wonderful with medium rare steak. Plant get more and wait to "ripen".

Good Bordeaux for the price. Not very complex but smooth, balanced, and drinkable. I enjoyed this at home with a steak!

A tasty Merlot based Bordeaux, retails for under $16 most places.

Oxidized but still had some strong Cabernet aromas. Green peppers and baked fruit. No label when it came to me---pulled this one from Internet.
