We are thrilled to have another incredible Bordeaux value that offers a ton of bang for the buck as our wine of the month! This is a classic Bordeaux blend that ticks all the boxes: great fruit on the nose and palate, appropriate secondary nuances, fantastic body (tannins and acidity) to keep the wine fresh and moving forward. Best of all, it delivers just what you want in a delicious Bordeaux and it drinks way above its everyday price point. Looking for the perfect red that will pair with our late spring cooldowns and early summer warmups? Got the grill out yet? You'll want to with this one.

The nose exudes red and dark berries with a streak of midnight floral, currants, dark cherries and plum along with hints of spice, citrus and earth. Fruit fills the palate as well, with gorgeous reductions of cherries and plums that are kept fresh with excellent body-the well-integrated tannins and acidity make this one a natural for spring/summer grilling. Fruit leather, a touch of mineral, forest floor and dark spices add some background complexity-- but the fruit is the star of the show here!

We've been fortunate in the last year or two in that we've been able to offer some fantastic sleepers from Bordeaux Superieur that really deliver the goods. This is another one of those gems!

50% Merlot 30% Cabernet Sauvignon 15% Cabernet Franc 5% Malbec.

WINE ENTHUSIAST 90 POINTS - "Owned by the consultant Boissenneau family, the wine is an exemplary blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Generous tannins are balanced by the juicy black-currant acidity of the fruit."

JAMES SUCKLING 90 POINTS - "Notes of ripe dark and blue fruit, tobacco, leather and wet earth. Some leafiness, too. Medium body. Firm and viscous tannin structure, a velvety mouth-feel and a savory finish. Merlot and cabernet sauvignon. From organically grown grapes."
