I took Moxie out to a fusion Korean/Cajun restaurant last night and ordered this little gem. From the stunning 2009 Bordeaux vintage, this lower level wine is drinking beautifully right now. Earthy, tobacco and cassis are reminiscent of higher quality Claret, yet for the price, this wine totally delivers. Tannins are very much ingrained, smooth and holding this wine in stead. The structure and acidity are really good, providing you with a ready-to-drink Bordeaux that mixes blue fruit with the characteristics I love from the Medoc. From the nose all the way to the finish, you will be satisfied with this wine. Like I mentioned, we paired it with a mix of spicy, earthy and bold flavors, it shone with all. 5 stars and potentially a 90 point wine. I must check my local wine shop….
