This Bordeaux is a blend of 77% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc offers enticing aromas of ripe berries, complemented by a subtle hint of vanilla. Lovely notes of earth and fresh herbs enhance the fruit-forward palate, and merge with round, soft tannins on the finish. This wine drinks beautifully now and will continue to age well.
Thought I could get away with it. 2010 Bordeaux was the highest rated vintage in the past 10 years according to Wine Spectator. Unfortunately, this bottle doesn't make the cut in our house. Not sure if it's turned or what but it reveals flavors of wet newspaper and stagnant water. Run don't walk to the Mouton-Cadet at this price point.
