Haut Medoc, Bordeaux. 13%
Exotic, or at least interesting mélange of aromas. This is a poster child for minor Bordeaux that have returned something unusually special in 2005.
Ripe with chewy tannins but still the refreshing natural acidity that is lacking so often in New World wines at this price point.
Slightly milky oak (as if there is some American).
Some raisin flavours, yet not a dull ripe wine.
Drink now to 2013.
