A Bordeaux Superier from a modest vintage that did not break the bank. $12 buys an everyday Cab/Merlot blend with tasty red fruits and some cassis. The tannins seemed a little unripe to me, almost like they had let some green stems stay in the must a little too long. The result was a slightly angular back end finish. I would buy it again and pair it with a cheese platter and some cold cuts. Nothing special here yet appealing for some reason or another. 85 points and 3 stars. Salut….
