This youthful red is fairly dense, supple and nicely structured, but there is an oyster shell/bandaid character that...

Dark ruby, dark berry - blackberry, earthy, barnyard, leather, cedar. Medium mouthfeel, tannins are a bit rough, reasonable finish. Jan 2011.

Hey wadayaknow: A cheap Bordeaux that actually tastes pretty good!

Mid-weight, mid-concentration, but for the price hey, not bad at all!

Still a bit tight on the nose but a typical lefty palate-profile: blackberry, blackcurrant, herbs, a bit of wood. Plenty of tannin but in balance.

All in all a really good value and a great everyday Bordeaux.

Drinking very well now but will certainly mellow and integrate over the next few years. Personally I prefer drinking stuff like this on the young and virile side like the French do.
