This is maturing blend of merlot, cab sauvignon and franc offers a lot for the money. Expect fairly ripe dried berry...

A gorgeous, very approachable right-bank Bordeaux. Tons of ripe fruit aromas of plum, blackberry, and raspberry. Vanilla, cedar, and a touch of eucalyptus and cinnamon as well. On the palate it is plush, mouthfilling, and velvety, but kept balanced by bright acidity and a nice, well-integrated tannic structure. The aromas repeat, but with more baking spice notes. Long finish, with vanilla, plum, and mocha. Great value.

A very solid red Bordeaux made from the Merlot, Cab Franc and Cab Sauv. No resorting to heavy oaking or over-extraction, this wine is an authentic Bordeaux. Ripe fruit, but not over-ripe, balanced by hints of herbs, balanced acidity and just the right amount of tannin. Obviously not the concentration or structure of the classified growths but true to its origins and well-made..and most importantly, delicious. For drinking over the next 3 years. Fine value. Tasted December 2014.

Great Bordeaux blend. Very smooth. You can drink it with food or without food with the same enjoyment. Tasted August 2015.
