I enjoyed this much more than the other reviewers. At first taste this is a bit thin.... but is very smooth. After a bit of time open the fruit is very evident. Mostly bright red fruit and hints of prunes in the mid palate. The finish isn't overly long but is pleasant. I picked this bottle up for $6.00 at Costco and this is by far the best $6 wine I have ever had.

Overripe, highly extracted fruit, yet somehow thin and watery. I wasnt really a fan of this. Lean with lots of minerality, but it was the licorice and medicinal finish that turned me off. Good acidity would help it pair with food, but its still got a tart finish.

I bought a half case from Costco at $14.99 per bottle. Heavy tanin taste and very acidic. I let two bottles breath for an extended period of time. Don't waster your money.

This lower pedigree wine represents undeniable quality/value rapport in 2005. This vintage is so deep in quality among the better run, less heralded estates, that these wines should appeal to readers looking for terrific values from Bordeaux. Most of these wines are Merlot-based and will be drinkable young. Sleeper of the vintage.

Sweet, fleshy, oaky nose. Black cherries, blackberries. Supple, almost lush, though tannins are a touch green and hard. From 2010.

Bordeaux wines of the Cru Bourgeois classification have been having a definition crisis recently. Whether “Exceptionnel” or “Superieur,” this classification was outlawed last year — but only after some producers had already started bottling and distributing this 2005 vintage. As you can see from the label, this wine was one of those that got through. It has a deep crimson color with notes of charcoal, pepper, oak and cherry on the nose, a medium body, and a long earthy and herbal finish. Luckily, the “Cru Bourgeois” classification will apparently be making a comeback, but with higher standards of quality to be followed. It’s hard to imagine what will come next from them if this fantastic wine was created with what are now to be considered lower-quality standards. For now, I guess will just have to drink this great wine and wonder. Food pairing: red meats Flavor type: traditional Body type: medium-full Finish: rich

Big tannins give way to blackberries and herbs on the palate. We think this wine will really open up and show much more complexity in a few years.

This vintage is filled with great quality wines and a wine like this offers greater value. More approachable too on the palate since it's based on the Merlot grape.
