It's only wine but I like it

These days, with the ludicrous prices for classified growth Bordeaux, one needs to search to the "lesser" regions if one wants a red Bordeaux. This Merlot based Castillon (with less amounts of Cab and Merlot) is a fine example of right bank Bordeaux at a decent price. Nicely balance ref fruits with well integrated oak. Drinking nicely now, could hold a few more years. Enjoyed this thoroughly. Tasted Feb 2017.
