Mouton Cadet 2003 Wine Review- Real Time (NW)

I am enjoying this glass of wine as I write.

Pretty nose of roses and berries
Plum on the palate
Floral finish accompanied by hefty tannins

For bargain Bordeaux, this wine is actually quite good. I was worried about the hefty tannins at first, but they faded away as the wine warmed up from cellar temperature.

The floral notes in this wine are really nice and a change of pace from inexpensive wines that carry too much grape and oak qualities. I see this label everywhere and have been wanting to give it a shot. It's cheap- at $8 or so, and magnums are readily available, too.

If you're looking for a bouquet of roses in a wine glass, this is it. Interesting and expressive for the money! Raise a glass!

Definitly a good bottle of wine. After 30 minutes of breathing the tannins are much less "harsh"
(bitter). An excellent, inexpensive bottle of Bourdeaux.
