Mixes some pepper, tobacco and leather notes with currant and blackberry. Benefits from some air.
A poor imitator, the wine is too watery, thin. The aftertaste weakly lingers, bitter, on the tongue, disappointing a fine nose of blackberry and port.
This was a pleasant surprise as it was the wine served on a dinner cruise on the river Seine in Paris. I found it extremely drinkable - a good mid-range, affordable Bordeaux!
