Great Value


Napa Valley winemaker Benoit Touquette, a protege of winemaking stars Michel Rolland and Andy Erickson, flew over the pond to make this Merlot-based Red Bordeaux that provides immediate satisfaction. Dark berry/cherry fruits are supported by sweet Indian spices, black truffle, cigar wrapper and vanilla. Medium/full body, juicy, soft tannins and an impressive 15 second finish make this a very satisfying house red wine. As a wine merchant, I placed this wine in both the New World and Old World sections of the store because of it’s modern winemaking style and packaging. It sold well in both areas, as it should. Excellent “bang for the buck” here.
