Varieta: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot

Alcohol: 14.5%

Region: Bordeaux > Libournais> St. Emilion

Price: $15 – Trader Joes

 

Tasting Notes: 

Full bodied with earthy and mineral notes.   Hints of black cherry, plum, black berry and vanilla. The body was medium and dry,  with high alcohol, acid and tannins.

Food Pairing:

Due to high tannins and acid, pair with meats that can stand up to it such as beef and lamb.

Conclusion:

Excellent value wine.  You won’t find too many at this price  for a Grand Cru so grab a few bottles for the holidays as your guests will not be disappointed. Ready to drink now but will likely become better over time.
