Chateau Machorre Grand Vin De Bordeaux 2005 wine review by (PB)
Big spicy sweet fruit rising from glass with a hue that is definitely showing it's maturity. Get you nose deep in the glass for firm cedar, herbs.
Palate--Subdued fruit with robust cedar wood, light charcoal, slightly chunky tannins and a light smokey finish.
I paid $8 for this reduced Bordeaux (normally $15) and I'll grab 3 more to lay down another year. It is probably peaked based on the color at the rim but another year might yield something worth the wait. Classic Bordeaux so raise a glass.
