Sadly, I have not tasted nearly as many non-classified 2006's as I would have liked; but this does not mean there...

A lovely spiced, woodsy nose entices on this delicate Medoc tasting at its peak right now. Medium-bodied, quite...

Medium ruby to garnet in colour with medium to medium+ intensity on the nose.

Positives: Cedar, blackberry, plum, cassis, anise, turmeric, pencil shavings & leather. In other words classic Cabernet Sauvignon. Medium body with medium tannins, medium acidity & medium+ length.

Negatives: Flavours are somewhat muted.

Interesting Point: Found this wine on sale at LCBO for $16.15.

Drink now on its own or pair it bacon, mushroom burger.

Tasted: 31 Mar 12

Score: 8.5+/10, Value: 8.5/10 (sale price 9.5/10), Total: 17.5/20

Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 3.5

I enjoyed this more than I thought I would. Sweet nose of blackberry/blackcurrant jam, spices like thyme, bay leaves come to mind, some woodiness. Full bodied with good fruit concentration, some earthiness. Tannins are modest. Some sourness and acidity on the finish but overall it's softer, fruitier and not as rustic as I thought it would be. A Thursday dinner Bordeaux.
