A nice Cabernet Sauvignon based blend from Bordeaux.

Showing black fruits with earth, vegetables, tobacco leaf, spices, oak, vanilla, licorice, black tea and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with a nice mouthfeel and nice complexity.

Still young and needs another 5 years to mature properly. However, it is drinking nicely now by itself or with food.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

Surprisingly good value. Not the most complex, but an enjoyable (albeit young) Margaux.

Young but more complex than similar aged. Great with cheeses, spicy chicken, and Christmas cookies! 😬

Very soft and plush with great depth and richness from an excellent vintage. Plummy and earthy at the same time. Really good bargain at $20.

A modern style Bordeaux from Margaux, one of my favorite AOC in the region. A crime to drink this modern blend of Cabernet Sauvignon 55%, Merlot 40%, Petit Verdot 5%, so young.
Well crafted modern in style, deep red color almost black, full of black current, plums, blur berries, Caesar wood, dust, soil, coffee and plums, medium to full body, with well integrated tannins and lovely supportive acidity. My score 87, drink 2016-2025, score might improve over time as there is potential

2012 vintage. Violet and blackberry nose. Dry, medium bodied, with plum, black raspberry, oak, green peppercorn. Got the timing right on this one. 13% ABV.
