This is another wine from the iYellow Bordeaux after work party.

It was my second favorite of the night. Dark in color with nice red berries coming through on the nose. On the mid pallet the wine has some nice red berries to go with the bouquet. It is medium in body and medium on the finish. The tannins are subtle, fine as they say in the LCBO description below. The tannins build nicely in the mouth as you continue to sip (assuming your not drinking it with food). I would give it an 89. Not a bad deal given the price.
