Another from the iYellow Bordeaux after work party. My least favorite of the evening.
Dark in color with red berries on the nose. A blend of Cab Sauv and Merlot. On the mid pallet are red and dark berries with some of the dried fruit tastes coming through. On the finish the wine is medium in length with some tannins and some oak. This is a smooth well made wine but nothing exceptional. I would give it an 88-89. For the money I would look elsewhere.
