This is probably my favorite Bordeaux. Not too heavy, good flavor, and not too tannic. I'm definitely going to order this again!
Earthy and herbal on the nose; Lots of herb, grass, green pepper. Needed at least an hour to decant to tame it and get to the fruit; then you get a nice blending of acid, tannin and fruit. Really good with meatballs and pasta.
I don't tend to like Merlot, but, since it came in my box and was 30% cab, I gave it a try. It was only drinkable by making it into a wine spritzer with juice and seltzer over ice. I'll probably have to plan to make sangria with the second bottle to get through it.
