A very rich and delicious Bordeaux. This Bordeaux had more body than I’ve experienced before, and we loved it. It has a wonderful nose, plummy and woodsy, not too much “cigare volante”*.

Note to wine lover: Open this bottle pour a glass for yourself and a friend or two and let it breathe for about 40 – 60 minutes. It needs to get used to itself.

Red Bordeaux are created with Cabernet Sauvignon, often blended with Cabernet Franc and Merlot. The color tends to be a garnet/ruby shade. The flavor is typically a light one, with blackberry, black fruits, wood, and other notes. A classic Bordeaux is said to have a *”cigar box” aroma to it.  Really unbeatable for the price.

Wonderful with roast chicken, meats, rich pasta dishes, and even robust Thai food.
