Chateau De Macard 2005 wine review by (PB)

Another Bordeaux from the famed 05 vintage is 30% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 50% Cabernet Franc and a great price of $10. It has a young purple hue with chocolate raspberry and red fruit on the nose.

The palate is a little feisty with tight fruit flavors and smoke. Given some time to breath--important with this vintage--the chocolate minimizes and the fruit opens to dry cherries and wood. Can't lose at this price and I suggest buying more and laying it down for another year or two! Raise a glass.
