Nice typical nose, the round juicy texture compliments the fruit well. Good drying tannin.

As has been said I'm not a big cabernet fan (sauvignon that is - franc is a completely different matter) but I kind of like this one. It still has that sort of austere feel to it but in a tolerable way.

A lovely fruity, oaky Bordeaux blend, though the alcohol's a little too high.

Tastes like muddy water and lemon juice.

Good one. Plums and blackcurrant on the nose. Medium bodied and soft at first but then an explosion of cherry and stronger than expected tannins through a long finish. Ready to drink now. Great value.
