25oz Riedel bordeaux Upon opening. On the nose: Hints of floral arrangements, tart and ripe red cherries, cinnamon, and spices. On the palate, slightly tart red fruits burst on the palate accompanied by firm tannins, which then fades to a riper fruit char actor loaded with great minerality.
As the wine opens up over the coarse an hour in a decanter, you will receive a greater concentration in aroma the tannins level off, the minerality softens, leaving you with a very soft and elegant, true to the region French wine at an "Americanized" price point.
This Rivals many Rhone style blends at twice the price.
