Out of stock for a reason
Out of stock, given its popularity.
Seemed to be a very simple blend with little complexity making it a very universal drinking wine. I should have stored it for a couple years to see what it would have done.
Seems true example of terroir....
for Languedoc Pay d'Oc. Must admit, though, I tend to agree with a few of the other reviews which included words like "thin" and "lacking complexity". I think my problem was that I opened and tasted just after finishing the last of the previous evening's bottle of Lot 638 Yakima Petite Verdot. My expectations of more P.V. giving some hearty backbone to the Cab blend went unfulfilled. What to do in that case? Open another 638!! Maybe some hard to find 80-100% Syrah-based Rhone wines will become available down the line to give us another "taste of France" ?
Nice Red Blend
This had nice fruit but lacked a little complexity. Maybe store in the bottle and see what it does?
Red blend, delightful
This was a happy experience. Nice flavor and great price.
Hard to Resist
I should cellar at least one of the four bottles I ordered, but this wine is hard to resist.
Nice fruit but thin.
Nice fruit at the beginning but then uninspiring body and finish. A bit thin and lacking complexity. A decent light wine for lighter dishes/food but not the more elegant experience I was looking for
Very nice french blend
It was fine but nothing special. Was nice to see CH looking for values in other regions.
Love this region, hope Cam sources more from here!
I love the Languedoc, such great QPR. This wine was enjoyable, but I think I expected more given how many great values come from this region. I think the region is perfect for the CH approach and really look forward to trying another from here. This was nice, but not really memorable.
I always like a good red wine blend for the complexity. This one does not disappoint. Will purchase again
