An easy drinking Cabernet Sauvignon from France. Showing black fruits with earth, chocolates, tobacco, spices and peppercorn.

A little over the hill by now and better when fresh.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Dry and fruity on the palate. Good by itself or with food. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

14% alcohol by volume.

86 points.

A little lacking for me, but a decent Cabernet. Wasn't clearly evident that there was much oak aging, and drank like a young cab, which it is. Dark purple, with casis notes, green pepper, and tart, minerally undertones and some tart fruit.

Surprisingly light -- not a good thing. Didn't speak to me as didn't seem complex nor elegant as it was suscribes to me. Earthy and fruity. Heavy tannins.

Not bad, slight French sulfury taste, but in a good way. I'd get it again.

Easy to drink. No headache the next day. Dark cherry, toasted oak, BlackBerry, cigarbox, vanilla. We had with deer tenderloin and grilled veggies.

Light tannin, fruity smooth. Fresh smell and oaky. Had with steak and crab cakes.

Total Wine - $15 - tasted this at a blind taste test. I thought it was the $40 bottle. Nice surprise it was $15 instead. Very smooth and light. Opened bottle last night. Really love this wine. Very surprised, since I normally just drink California wines. Will definitely buy another bottle.
