For our Thanksgiving Turkey supper, most guests favoured a red over a white. When there are a lot of guests around the dinner table I try very hard to respect a budget of around $20. this wine I felt came in as a good choice at $21.70!
The smell was interestingly complex but not too intense, a perfect balance so far with Turkey. My first taste revealed a mineral flavour with rich dark fruits. Very soon the dark cassis became very prominent followed by black cherries. It soothed itself slightly with an introduction of velvety vanilla before the medium length tannins tinged with chocolate.This wine truly had no choice but to please everyone with four types of grapes, Merlot, Carmenere, Petit Verdot and Syrah. I would say a good match for the turkey and bravo!
