This is a classic example of an entry level Bordeaux. Red and black currant, dark plum and vanilla spice from the slightly overpowering oak influence are lifted by a tart, tannic structure. Tasted at WWAC Sept 2013.

This Cabernet/Merlot blend is an average effort, but it’s a wine that tastes adequate at first taste.
Aroma is very subtle, with only some cherry and a bit of black currants coming through. It hits the tongue nicely, but lacks any great length.
It paired nicely with the cheeses we were eating: Gouda, Emmental and Australian Cheddar.
Overall, this tasted like what it is: an affordable Bordeaux. Better to spend your money on a similar wine from a lesser known region.
