Chateau Segonzac 2005 wine review by (PB)

On a recent trip out to L.A. my wife brought me back this 05 Bordeaux. It was $20 at BevMo and has nice deep garnet color that carries to the rim.

Nice rich berry aromas that appear new world but, of course, are not and reminds me of a Barolo.

After breathing 2 hours the wine is still a bit harsh and a little tannic. It is meaty, smokey and somewhat austere with a spicy finish but licorice up front. After four hours of air though the wine is fully integrated, balanced with nice berry fruit and a very nice inexpensive Bordeaux (Cru Bourgeois from the Cotes De Blaye) so raise a glass.
