Lafon-Rochet 2012, Bordeaux

Bordeaux “second wines” are great for inspired sipping at an “everyday” price point. Beautifully ripe cassis fruit mingles with dusty mineral earth and anise on the nose. Intensely aromatic. Bold and structured; core of black fruit and bitter herbs; long, drying finish. In its early prime, will be delicious with grilled meats for years to come. W.M.
