this wine online for around $30 - and it's well worth it. I'll give it a 8.5/10 rating...excellent.
First off, the back label wins the award for the most technical wine mumbo jumbo to ever appear on a label; words like maceration, malolactic and enologist make me wonder if this was ever translated from French ;)
As for the wine, it may have one of the finest bouquets I've ever smelled from a glass of wine. Seriously, I could just smell it all night and never drink it...but that would be wasteful, because the flavor is equally brilliant. Smoky oak and floral on the nose.
The Reignac is a 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon blend. The merlot brings the ripe, sweet, and fruit forward beginning and the cabernet leaves a nice bite with a dry finish with medium tannins. The oak barrels leave a wonderful smoky flavor to complement the nose.
