My fave budget Bordeaux $23. Goes so well with food & just drink on it's own. #cabernetsaugvinon #merlot

Very good price to quality ratio for a Bordeaux. Reserved fruit, some earth, opened up nicely.

I was studying differences between new world and old worlds wine and tasting this wine made everything easier. Its color was a lot lighter than most new world wines. Very nice ruby red color. On the nose it had a lot of fresh strawberry and licorice but not a lot of oak, yet it had some lactic notes. On the palate you can feel quite some astringency from cabernet sauvignon, yet it is light and satisfying. Definitely worth a glass.

Underwhelming at first, but got a lot better with time and food.

Wine#4: Somewhat disappointing given the pedigree and vintage.

Dark opaque burgundy color, smell of mint, plum, and raisin, fine tannin with good acidity, still quite fruity, smooth finish, medium at that.
