Deeply colored, this wine is ripe and jammy, with a core of sweet fruit. Drink this puppy near-term with a big, rich steak. 14.5% ABV
Drink from 2013 to 2015

A total shocker. This is a juicy, dark-fruited, wonderfully-balanced bottle of Bordeaux wine. It's not something to age, but something to drink while you're waiting for your other bottles to age. More new world, than old school, but it's not over the top. The ripeness of the vintage is simply on full display.

The Malbec on this wine makes it a very interesting Bordeaux. Quite smokey and meaty, with notes of bacon as well, but also with beautiful violets notes. Very good indeed

Saturated ruby-purple in the glass. Loads of dark berry fruit & spice on the nose. Easy drinking, woodsy & berry character. The Malbec really shows & provides lots of character over the Merlot. Truly excellent QPR from the forward 09 vintage!
Drink from 2014 to 2016

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
