Seriously underwhelmed by this wine. Nose very tight but showing traces of dark fruit and perhaps a whiff of menthol or eucalyptus. One dimensional odd-tasting dark fruit with firm tannins, thin middle and very short finish. It wasn't pleasant to drink with or without food. Never tasted this wine before so no frame of reference. Potentially corked but not yet showing TCA?

I wish I could see JR vs RP tasting this wine blind and totally disagree like they did with chateau Pavie. Mix reviews but I feel that under $25 is still a descendent wine.

It's a wine that you either love or hate. My husband is in the love side giving this wine 90 Pts. I am on the hate side as I find it cooked and off balance so to balance his high score, I am giving it 70 Pts. Averages out to 80 Pts. :)

80/20 Merlot to Cab Franc. Really, really nice. Pleasantly surprised.

I grabbed Chateau Siaurac after no fewer than five recommendations from interspersed friends. It’s very good. It’s from a warm year with ripe fruit and registers a dense but not hot 15% ABV.

Dark fruits, chocolate, coffee, lavender, and cedar. Flavors come in ripe plums, dark chocolate, figs, and herbs. Quite rich, but soft as velvet. Balanced and bold.

Beautiful nose, lighter on the palate with firm tannins.

BlackBerry, game, leather, strawberry. Very tannic. Could use another 5-10 years in the bottle.

Dark fruits. 2010 was a great year. Let it breathe for an hour or two and then delicious accompaniment to our BBQ meats
