Les Portes de Bordeaux 2009
The nose of this French red wine contains copious amounts of mocha. Deep, rich blackberry is also present, but the chocolate dominates the nose. It’s very smooth when drinking. You hear the term jammy a lot when talking about wine, and this one fits that bill. I’d describe it as jam-filled like a fig newton. It’s thin for a red wine, but sweet and bready like a newton that’s been chocolate dipped.
Pleasant fruit, pleasant everything. And FYI, it goes remarkably well with chocolate-covered pretzels.by
