This is an excellent Bordeaux by Kressmann. If you are looking for an easy to drink and enjoy a wine full of beautiful flavors for a great price. This is the one. We decanted the wine for a short time to let it open. The first thing we noticed was the dark deep purple color. On the nose we picked up huge red fruit with vanilla and spice. The palate had dark fruit with deep balanced maturity. The structured layered body produced a velvety long finish.
