Dark in color with a nice dark berry nose. On the mid palate the wine matches the nose with lovely vibrant black cherries along with some mid mocha notes. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice approachable tannins, nice and dry. Quite a nice smooth Bordeaux and a great deal for the money, yumm! I would give it an 88 or so, not as complex or long as some but quite nice. Should keep for a little while, but to my tastes this is a drink now wine. We paired it with a BBQ filet mignon, and it was heavenly! From the LCBO web site, check stock:
