Unfortunately I was unable to try this wine when it was open, and now it has been a couple of days so it fizzled a bit. But all major characteristics still present. As Phredd and WineKnurd, whose opinion I respect, indicated this wine over delivers for the price. Nice earthy Bordeaux. Excellent structure, mouth feel that Cab Franc adds to the soft merlot. Very enjoyable.
Got this off WTSO for $10.99 delivered with low expectations but wow this wine was much better than anticipated. Nice fruit and earth, currants and tobacco leaves with hints of pepper. Good weight and mouthfeel, not harsh at all. Really delivers for the WTSO price; a stretch at the $25 Wine Searcher price. Style & Quality- B. Value- A-. Overall- B+.
