A medium-bodied, spicy red wine from Nprdeaux, France. Taste of berries, plum, chocolate and spice. Good with BBQ pork, beef, fresh fruits and grapes.

Dark ruby red. Nice fresh nose of strawberries, vanilla and Greek oregano. Medium weight. Crisply acidic and fruity entry: tastes of cranberry & herbs. Very dry, some sweetness. Initially quite fruity with medium tannins but became a bit more austere the next day. Somewhat modern in style but still very French. I was told this is mostly Merlot but I clearly detect a good bit of Cabernet Franc in the mix which I suspect did not ripen as well as the Merlot and gave this a slightly unripened green and bitter edge.

Good overall. More of a food wine than a sipper. I doubt I'd buy more.
