Juicy and friendly, with a core of raspberry and red licorice laced with toasty vanilla. The open-knit finish has enough grip to keep this honest. Drink now.
The 2009 Chateau Nardian is 100% Merlot from Saint-Emilion. Deep garnet in color with raspberries and a touch of vanilla on the palate. Fine-grained tannin on the finish provide nice balance.
