Reviews and Ratings

Kimberly Inksater - Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Inviting rich dark berry and cigar box aromas tempted me to drink this wine upon opening. But after decanting for a few hours the wine improved greatly. This dry red wine paired very well with smoked and slow roasted beef. Also try with other meats.
Trevor Sabourin - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Relatively simple, and more appealing on the nose than the palate. Aromas of plum, cherry, raspberry, cedar, vanilla, green bell pepper, and a bit of baking spice. The fruit is more like tart cherries, cranberries, and under ripe raspberries on the palate, with some cedar, green bell pepper, and a vague woodiness coming through. Gives a bit of a coarse impression with high, tart acidity and slightly rough tannins. Medium body and length. Pair with simple and/or slightly tough cuts of red meat. Tasted January 2016.
Produced by La Famille Saby, this French red wine is smoky, full-bodied and value-priced for quaffing. - Community Wine Reviews
