Licorice, chocolate, coffee and sweet red with black plum scents are easy to find in this blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon Bordeaux wine.

2006 Reignac  (Bordeaux Supérieur) 90

Who doesn’t like a deal? When the offer came to buy this for the whopping sum of about $12, I could not resist and bought a case. Earth, smoke, blackberry, coffee and smoke scents open to a fully mature, soft, medium/full bodied wine that ends with spicy, black cherries and a hint of dust in the tannins. I would drink this over the next 3-5 years. It’s not a wine for aging. But for this price, it’s a steal. It’s being offered by multiple merchants all over the country.

Still deep in color, with scents of coffee, smoke, licorice, plums. This concentrated wine is a blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, the same assemblage used in the 2005. The opulently textured finish ends with licorice, chocolate, black cherries and hints of blue fruit. I prefer drinking these wines on the young side to retain their upfront, ripe, lusty fruit qualities.

My last bottle of this wine offered licorice, coffee, black raspberries and juicy plums with earthy notes.
