Dark berries on the nose with a hint of sweet strawberry
Smooth, plush texture
Some currant and chocolate emerge on the finish, with moderately chewy tannins
I am impressed with the texture of this wine, it has a plush feel in the mouth. The fruit characteristics are well-rounded and the finish is nice.
For Grand Vin de Bordeaux in the $10-15 range, this is a winner. I paid $10 on sale, based on a recommendation from PB. His review of the same wine can be found below, dated April 24, 2006. Raise a glass!
