Best Bets - Kressman Croix
With Spring taking its time to arrive this year, there's still lots of time left to enjoy some BIG red wines! Both Cork Dorks at Metro, Geoff and Jim enjoyed this budge-friendly Bordeaux!
Bordeaux wines are either blends that focus on Cab or on Merlot(depending on which side of the river the grapes are from) This wine is Merlot-centric, with Cab Sauv and Cab Franc. What does that mean in the glass? Soft fruity aromas and flavours of black cherry, mocha and spice. Easy drinking at a price that's hard to beat!
We're convinced that Jim Martin loved this wine because of it's name(Saint Martin), but he assures us that is not the case. It's the perfect introduction to Bordeaux in one glass. Not your mother's 1966 Mouton Rothchild, but fabulous Bordeaux bang for your buck.
