Fabre Montmayou Red Bordeaux Blend Grand Vin 2012

Member Review by dynowine:

Undecanted from a preservation machine. Intense creamy nose with fruit and hints of tobacco and earth. In the mouth rich layered ripe and chewy sour fruit (cassis, blackberry, and dark cherry) with hint of earth. Lively acid on the attack, fuzzy tannins on the tongue. Finish of sour fruit that fades to dirt and nut and lingers with some pleasant bitterness. Body medium plus, acid medium plus, tannins medium plus. Dry. Quite tasty, ok price as tested, about USD30.

This is a great value. I got it for $13. The only way I can describe this wine is that it's very sensual. It's not a hedonistic fruit bomb, but it's very much like a $30 california cab. Very warm (not in an alcoholic way) and well made with lots of dark fruits. This won't hold for many years as the tannin level is low.
