Chateau Tour St Bonnet 2006

I am always looking for Bordeaux between $20 and $30 that is drinking well.  This wine fit the price range.  The vintage is 2006, that I have personally found a bit hit or miss.  The wine?  An aroma of bruised red fruits, with a pleasant palate, nothing more, nothing less.  This wine rises above the sometimes dire sub $20 Bordeaux bracket, but it is pleasant, rather than good.  81 points.

Price: around $28
