Les Portes de Bordeaux "Bordeaux" 2022


Nearly cola colored hue with nice bouquet of crushed dried red berries, and cola on the edge.

Palate--Unpleasant first impression but big flavors of red fruit, young tannins, and a lingering finish that is beyond expectations for this cheap Bordeaux.

A Trader Joe's wine this Bordeaux cost $7.50 and how can you go wrong at that price point?  Well actually you good but this isn't the case here. It is a bit stern and lacks finesse but is a serious wine that should pair well with robust foods and cheeses.  Not the best "all by itself" wine but should be great with my grilled Chicken thighs.  If it turns out differently, you will read it here!  Raise a glass.
