Quite herbal, with some green beans and anise up front. Black fruit takes a back seat but is these if you look for it. Blackberry and beach plums come to mind. The tannins are a bit rustic.

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 that's the vintage. Tobacco notes mark the finish.

Branded Bordeaux has a deservedly spotty reutation, but this year'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.

Medium bodied with aromas of dark cassis, black cherry, and some green vegetable; hints of spice and herbs on the palate with good balance of acidity, alcohol, and tannins. For everyday drinking. Pork tenderloin.

Mouton Cadet is one of the most recognized wines coming out of France. It remains consistently good, both in quality and price, from year to year.

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.

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.
