Color: Intense and brilliant dark cherry.
Nose: Tightly packed and elegant, with complex aromas that pleasantly combine ripe stone fruit (cherry) with fresh berries, especially blackcurrant.
Palate: A very smooth and full-bodied attack. Ripe fruit (cherry, blackcurrant) is immediately apparent, with powerful tannins. Remarkable overall balance. A generous and pleasant finish, sustained by attractively lingering flavors.
This is a wonderful Bordeaux for the price. You just can't beat it. Smooth, drinkable, goes with a variety of meat and pasta dishes.
Not very flavorful, harsh and "alchohol-ish".
This wine is solid...somewhat harsh..readily available in 1.5 lt size for about $15. Good for daily imbibing but would try others for company.
