Amazing wine, it's smooth. Never enjoyed such a great glass a wine. Very fine, ripe taste and it's not too strong.

Not an expert critic
But, this is a great wine for beginners!

A steal for $15. Rich, smooth with a nice finish. Dark fruits on the palate, with a nice spicy aroma. Worth drinking now and/or holding on to for a couple years.

Dark Ruby colour. Cherry, dark fruit, blackcurrant, earth, leather. Dry, quite tannic - comes across quite young with a fair bit of acidity. Seems fairly well balanced and given the levels of fruit, tannin and acid may cellar for a while. Feb 2011.

A great Bordeaux for beginners.

New school Right bank all the way: Plush and ripe, soft and highly drinkable. Fairly simple, and a bit thin on the mid-palate, but it has good fruit and everything in decent balance. A bit too forward for my taste but at $15 you can't go wrong. Great value.

Great ruby colour. Medium intensity. Aromas of cherry, earth with a touch of savoury herbs. Enjoyable mouthfeel. Medium mild firm tannins. Bright acidity. Medium + length.

I feel like this wine is going to evolve in my glass. Worth decanting or waiting.

Very tasty for a basic Bordeaux. Moderately alcohol forward, rich mouth feel, earthy and balanced flavors, nice finish but a little harsh.
A very good value for the coin.
