This is a delightful table/dinner wine. On quality alone I give it four and a half stars but at the price of about $6.50, it is a five star wine to me.
Great wine for this price. Well balanced and easy to drink.
We've bought a couple cases of this great-for-the-price wine over the past three years. Goes well with fish, fowl or red meat. My wife & I have gone through a couple bottles a week this summer and found it to fit well with anything I ws grilling. Don't let the price scare you ... it's a good value.
This is a great RED to have daily. It's smooth and tasteful wine at a price that can't be beat
I have two very simple rules when it comes to buying wines Rule #1- you dont have to spend more than $10 for a bottle of wine; and Rule #2- there is no Rule #2. I have enjoyed this wine for many years and at $6.99 a bottle its a real treat. Very consistent from year to year. IMHO-compares favorably to reds costing $20.
have always loved this as my everyday red table wine; more sophistication than almost anything else at this price....friends have always said "wow you shouldn't have spent that much on wine for all of us." The best? no. the best at this price? yes.
Very nice Bordeaux wine especially for $7...very nice nose, cherry color with slight hint of purplish hues. A little dry but not overly so. Smooth finish. I was lucky as I got the last bottle in store at the time. I must remember to buy a half case or a case next time!
Letting this wine breath and pairing this (2004) with a New York cut steak went well. For a Bordeux under $10, this wine met and exceeded our expectations.
Not bad for the price.
This is possibly the best bargain in the wine world. Ignore those who dismiss this wine as a simple quaffer, only fit to be served with hamburgers and barbeque. This wine has a bit of depth and complexity, more than you'll find in any other red at this price.
Dry, Medium body, long finish. No rebuy on this one
There's Fine Wine and Cheap Wine - this is neither. Instead, it is a nice, relaxing red.
This is a great everyday wine especially for the price.
Not a bad pick overall, subtle and drinkable. Not a great Bordeaux. But, for the money, its good to go.
2007 - An average Right Bank Bordeaux, 65% Merlot / 20 Cabernet Sauvignon / 15 Cabernet Franc. Tastes of chocolate and bing cherry with a hint of tobacco. Fairly dry.
My fiance' and I bought a 2003 bottle and it was smooth at first but then very acidic. We were dissapointed. It has been in our wine fridge for a couple of weeks and we will probably use it for cooking if that gives you any idea. Perhaps, 2003 was not a good year for this wine but a previous review was listed for a 2001 bottle of wine with a simillar review. Try it and you decide.
this wine is on the inferior side, for a inventory that Don over sees. Better to drink other non-negotiant Bordeauxs.
I won't say it's completely bad since there's nothing really wrong with the structure per se. It's just a monotonous table wine. For $8 I can by a Trapiche Malbec that is WAY better.
For the price, there are no huge complaints, but that being said, I thought the 2001 was very green, the acidity was very harsh, it lacked the tannin I would have expected from a Bordeaux, and it had an overdeveloped nose of cheap eucalyptus mint. The fruit is fairly well developed, but the acidity steals it away on the palate. Its not a horrible wine, but there are better ones out there (admittedly not in Bordeaux) even at this cheap price.
Although you probably can't find another Bordeaux for the price, drinking this because it's "Bordeaux" is like buying the hood ornament off of a Mercedes and standing behind it making a "vroom" noise. This is simply cheap Bordeaux and it shows. For the price you can get far more enjoyable wines from the Loire, southern France, etc.
For a dollar or two more you can have a REAL bordeaux, estate bottled, this is a basic wine, nothing great at all, try the wine in my subject line, 200% better IMO
The taste matches the price. Use it for cooking might be ok.
It's not surprising to have taste below my expectation for bordeaux compared to the price.
