Review

With phenomenal richness and complexity for the price, this Merlot-dominant Bordeaux blend is an absolute steal. The nose is succulent yet lifted, with notes of red and black cherry, blackberry, mint chocolate, and vanilla bean, all of which become more tart on the palate. Full and grippy, flavors of cinnamon spice and sweet tobacco add even more nuance on the long finish.

Tastes Like A complex, classic Bordeaux blend that tastes twice as expensive as it is, with succulent fruit, rich oak, and mint.
