I always look for a good value and this wine is just that. Bordeaux is usually synonymous with astronomical wine prices and big bold reds. Well this one is a little different, at $10 a bottle it makes a stand that balanced, palatable wine does not have to cost an arm and a leg. This wine is a red blend (Merlot 65% Cabernet Sauvignon 20% and Cabernet Franc 15%) of very traditional grape varietals of the Bordeaux region. It's a very well balanced wine with notes of cherries and hint of smoke. I made a Rib Eye steak on the grill to go with this wine. Any sort of red meat would do with this wine, but don't over season the steak. Let the meat and the wine talk to each other and enjoy the conversation. You should be able to find this wine at your local BevMo, which makes it a very accessible wine.
