    Based on the reviews of my colleagues and Clyde himself, I had to get my hands on this wine. And instead of buying a single bottle first, I jumped right in and bought a case. I'm sure glad I did! This wine hits all the right Bordeaux tasting notes offering great balance between fruit and earthiness, acidity and tannins, making it a very approachable, every day wine for food pairing or pleasurable sipping.

    $10.99 are you out of your mind? The 2014 and 2015 sold out quickly-this will also. Another of our finds on the 2017 Bordeaux trip. Spicy, jammy, vibrant red-just like most of the 2016s. Lively and sweet with red berry flavors. A must buy. Toasty oak for $11?
    Drink from 2017 to 2027

    I was very impressed with the seriousness of the wine at this price range. Plum notes with a soft but nicely framed core and beautiful woodsy notes,

    This early release 2016 is filled with ripe and creamy cocoa infused cherry fruit in a smooth and enjoyable style. This is fresh, lifted and ample for easy quaffing.

    The Bordeaux region is flexing its value wine-producing muscles with this gem that is absolutely delicious and only $10.99. It has a complex and tasty flavor profile with notes of smoky game, herbs, red fruit and licorice with a great balancing acid and nice earthy spice on the finish. This would make for a great house wine and can proudly be shared with guests.
