Man, I didn’t mean to do a Bordeaux blend 2 weeks in a row, but thems the breaks. We served lightly chilled with a pasta dinner.
The appearance was dark ruby and very leggy. The aroma was blackberries and vanilla. It was full-bodied, with a complex evolution of oak and earth, and a long finish.
Overall, it was better than last week’s Bordeaux, though I still only give it 3/5 stars.
