This rouge feels a little thin. It is Merlot and Cab Franc, with Bordeaux appellation only. It is fine, but a little odd with merlot and cab franc the only varietals. Table wine to be sure, and really as pedestrian as one would want, without crossing into traffic. Cherry blueberry cola with plum and clay.

Christina approves. Moderate. Kristy says it’s dry but I say very in between.

Plum, red berries, fruit forward. Slight tobacco, medium minus tannins, medium acidity. Simple introductory Bordeaux.
