Winemaker's Notes

Keeping with the tradition of Bordeaux's left bank, this wine is primarily Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine has an intense ruby red color and resembles a more traditional Bordeaux style with strong tannin structure that will enable good aging. The nose displays black currants and mint. Good fruit balance on the palate along with herb and spice character. This is a powerful yet seductive Bordeaux. It's a young wine so it will benefit from decanting first. A great steak wine! Blend: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc.

Wow, you know I usually do not buy wines under $20.00 just way too much bad luck, but I decided to give this one a try because it was on sale for $12.95... I SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN MORE!!! Sure enough, when I went back to check, vintage sold out. This happens to me all the time. Anyway, it's great red by itself, I had it with dinner of course (meats and cheese).
