2016 - The Ducasse Graves Rouge shows off classic Bordeaux style. It is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc and displays a deep purple, garnet color. The nose on the wine is filled with upfront aromas of blackberry, red currants, cranberry, violets and dusty toasted notes any wine drinker will appreciate. It has a nicely structured mouthfeel full of deep dark plummy black fruits, suede like tannins and a pleasant dry finish. Pair this with a roasted quail, beef mushroom baked casserole and stuffed flank. This wine is another example of why some of the best values in the wine world come from Bordeaux.
