Médoc, Bordeaux, France; 13% ABV
$9 (pre-sale price) at the Berkeley, CA, store on 6 Nov
I had hopes for this wine because it had a Médoc designation, and because it seemed to be selling well, at a slightly higher price for the GO, even before the sale. However, it’s quite mediocre wine, pretty bad even.
Even after about 1.5 hours of air, it shows only fairly simple simple fruit of black currant and darker red cherry, with acid of red currant and a weird prune / vegetal flavor that made the finish rather repulsive. I would say Drinkable at best, but especially for this price, it’ll be Thumbs Down.
