Wine Spectator
There's a ripe plushness to the dried blackberry, fig and tobacco flavors that lengthen out on the spice-infused midpalate. Baker's chocolate, cream and vanilla notes power the finish. Malbec and Merlot. Drink now through 2019.

Additional Information

Region :
France
Though French wines are the highest valued wines in the world, esteemed wines from Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne were only enjoyed locally until 150 years ago when transportation improvements made them widely available. French wine production is governed by a strict quality-control system, which regulates the grapes used in each region and classifies wineries according to an elaborate cru hierarchy. Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc are just a few of the important grape varietals with roots in French soil. View all our items from France
