This was a brick red wine with beautiful aromas of dark cherries and raspberries and just a touch of vanilla. Medium body and mouth feel led to a strong black raspberry and cherry taste. The taste was deeper than the bouquet led me to expect. Good length and a soft, dry finish to this wine. It was very good with the duck, but two days later the remains were even better with some braised short ribs.
This was a very fairly priced wine with true Bordeaux character and a wine that didn't try to be more than a sound, drinkable wine.
2006 Ch. Larose-Trintaudon, Haut Medoc cru bourgeois. 13% alcohol and $18.
