Chateau Martinon 2006

This very well priced basic Bordeaux had an aroma of ripe blackcurrants with a touch of herbs.  The palate was pleasant, with nice length, some grippy and noticeable tannins and was in balance.  A blend of 75% merlot, 15% cabernet sauvignon and 10% cabernet franc.  Very pleasant, particularly at the price.  84 to 85 points.

Price: $55 at a restaurant, but I've since seen it for $21 at
