Chocolate-covered cherry, anyone? For me, “Haut-Medoc” usually signals a good, fun wine that will pair nicely with anything you throw at it. This bottle is no different: nose is chocolate and and earth and berries, and on the palate it’s more chocolate and red fruit. Medium tannins, moderate sugar and a long finish make this enjoyable alone, or paired with food. Recommended. Grapes are Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
