Fun wine for the price. Wild fruit, hint of toast, berry spice, earth, med bodied and somewhat soft tannin. Good food wine.

At some point in the evening, it's just too difficult to comment on every wine. Just too drunk.

Nice fruit but not too much. Tannins appear later.

This thing pops like my cherry at 18. Bursting with delish goodness and smooth as a bald truckers tire. Not a big/bold mouth feel but a nice medium body

Getting ready for a trip to Carcassonne with nice Cassoulet and bottle of Minervois, the Gerard Bertrand was a good choice. Nice smokey nose, good black fruit up front and a pleasant finish.

Needs to air. Otherwise, quite nice. HEB, about $15.00

Nice soft tannins, medium bodied and easy drinking. Dark fruits, cocoa and some earthiness. Not a very long finish. Seems like it is lacking something but age may help
