Clean and fresh, with berry and mineral character. Medium-bodied, with slightly chewy tannins and a medium finish. Well-made for the vintage. Real Bordeaux for a good price. Best from 2010 through 2013.

A blend of 65% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc, this is a medium-bodied Bordeaux for everyday drinking. The understated black cherry and cassis fruit does seem a bit lean, but thatrsquo;s the vintage. Tobacco notes mark the finish.

Color: A dense, brillian red with a purple tint. Nose: A fresh and harmonious nose, rich in ripe berry and red fruit aromas, especially black currant and morello cherry. Palate: The attack is supple and fruity, on jammy fruit, and the tannins are silky and well-rounded. The slightly spicy finish expresses all the distinctive character of ripe Merlot.

Most everybody's first Bordeaux is back for another year, with fruity black cherry aromas spiked with just a touch of vanilla and cedar. Juicy acidity keeps this crowd-pleaser lively through the lightly tannic finish. A good introduction to the genre.

Branded Bordeaux has a deservedly spotty reutation, but this yearrsquo;s Mouton Cadet aims to start turning that around. Cherries and chocolate on the nose, followed by smoky, earthy tobacco and black-cherry flavors. A silky texture makes it ready to drink now.

Winemaker's Notes:

The wine has a fine, deep red color, clean and brilliant, and a full, rich bouquet marked by berry fruit aromas. Round and well-balanced on the palate, it is both supple and generous, displaying great elegance and refinement. It has good aging potential and can be enjoyed for several years after the vintage date.
