Aaron: A mild, floral smell on this bordeaux was completely absent of any berries, but there was no bite.  It was interesting to feel the flavor dissipate in the mouth and evaporate into a watery finish.  Overall, pretty light with rose flavors and easy to drink but could be fuller.  88 points

Teri: This Bordeaux contains some standard characteristics of French wine, like an okay nose and earthly flavors throughout the entire wine. I tasted hints of red licorice in the overall medium to light body on the wine and the heavy oak flavors were not overpowering and paired well with the flavor of younger fruits (cranberry and raspberry). 89 points
