A nose of alpine berries

Decanted for 4 hours, as it’s such a young wine for this region, medium to heavier bodied with a rounded mouthfeel. Austere in its own right, this has flavors akin to raspberry, blueberry, white stone, anise acidity and firm, yet forgiving tannins.
French Merlot for the win.

If you want French and a 2014 for under $18 grab it. Dry, medium body at best, minerality and the taste disappears quickly. Ok, not great. Going to retry after it sits for an hour and see if it improved.

Nose starts with black cherry, leather and baking spice. The palate hits of plum, cherry and finishes with tomato leaf. As you start to explore the wine you get notes of dried roses and pepper. Very nice tannins that finishes of black tea.

Underdeveloped and lacking in distinct flavor profiles - it really is tough to find a good right bank Bordeaux for under $40

Total winner - perhaps 2011 was better than other reviews. Very silky on the front and a nice floral for the finish.
