Bordeaux Blend Wine Reviews
I drank these 3 wines and tasted black fruit, blackberry, blue fruit, bright, cherry, grippy tannins, leather, red fruit, smooth tannin, vanilla. The wines are aged, my favorites, small production and came from The Collectors Series by International Wine of the Month Club, SomMailier Wine Club, The Signature Series of The California Wine Club.

Great crowd-pleasing Bordeaux-style blend. Fruit-forward but balanced with smooth tannins, great acidity, and just a touch of vanilla from the oak.
Tasting notes: red fruit, vanilla, bright, smooth tannin
On the palate I tasted red fruits, blue fruits, black fruits (all the fruits, no, not really). The tannins were slightly grippy.
Tasting notes: red fruit, leather, grippy tannins, black fruit, blue fruit
Perfect medium-bodied, Bordeaux-style red wine to enjoy with any food not requiring a high-acid companion.
Tasting notes: red fruit, cherry, blackberry
Notice: I hold no formal wine credentials. I am a wine geek who has consumed 1000+ of bottles from 100+ different wine clubs and 1000s more bottles that didn’t come from those wine clubs. I do not accept payment for wine reviews, and I do not accept payments to influence my opinions. I happily accept free wine (and I buy wine).
Why read my wine reviews: Wine taste is subjective. What I like may not be what you like. I try to leave room for you to form your own opinions, so I don’t provide a score or a rating. I do point out wines that are an incredible value or truly not worth the money. I note flaws, wines that don’t have typicity (because this matters if you are buying wine without having tasted it yourself), when wines are out of balance, and when wines lack appropriate body.
I don’t like wasting money (or anything for that matter). I’m careful about where I spend my money and my mindset as a reviewer is to be careful about where you spend yours. I don’t believe a high price tag equals quality and I know for sure there are wines of very good quality that are also a great value.
