Chateau Machorre 2005 wine review by (PB)

Nice vibrant garnet hue with some opacity.

Aromas--Rich dark berries with a subtle note of age combined with ample rustic spices and cigar box notes.

Palate--refined tannins, nice berry foundation with intense, lively foundation with a solid beam of mature fruit and a nice old world finish.

I have been cellaring this for a while as I bought several bottles when I realized what a bargain price it was.

This is what I wrote in August of 2012: "Should hold for a couple more years and might even improve a bit but either way it is worth raising a glass!"

I paid $9 for this Bordeaux from the fabled vintage of 05. What a steal! So Raise a glass!!!
