A Bordeaux Superieur from the 2008 vintage, this wine is a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon that is now hitting its stride. Very heavy on the Merlot, it has a certain flavor profile that I don’t particularly care for, but is generally a decent wine. Red fruits on the nose don’t really translate to the palate, perhaps because the blend is too heavy on Merlot. I didn’t notice any imbalance and the tannic structure is ok. Not for long term aging, this wine is a good drinking wine that is relatively low in alcohol and acidity. For the price, I would give this a 3 star rating and guess at 85 points. Nothing special, just ok.
