    With its French heritage backing by Lafite, I expected it to be a good effort, and was not disappointed. In fact, I was surprised at how good this wine actually was. It drank very much like a more expensive wine from Medoc, except a little more fruit-forward. It had a full flavor profile, with nice dark fruit, spice and chocolate tones. Very pleasing weight and finish, and paired perfectly with a grilled steak. compared this wine to a few California Cabs costing much more. In a blind taste I'd have to agree with her except there's a bit more earth and mineral going on. Gritty tannins smoothed out after decanting allowing a good bit of red fruit to shine through
