Bordeaux, Cabernet Sauvignon, France, Margaux, Médoc, Red Wine

Back with a bang. This is terrific stuff. It is exactly what I expect a young, delicious Margaux wine to taste like. Black currant, cigar box, earth. Impressive structure, fine acidity, elegant fruit, finesse finish. Everything in balance. A great wine regardless of the price, but when factoring in price, this is a phenomenal buy. Can be cellared for quite some time. Highly recommended. 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, and remainder Petit Verdot.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
