Domaine du Salut Graves 2010


This is a sound wine from Domaine du Salut, a hitherto untasted producer.  From the 2010 vintage, it's a blend of 60% merlot and 40% cabernet sauvignon.  It provides more or less satisfactory drinking, with some earth and barnyard characters.  Its merlot influence lends it a red berry character that reminds of basic AOP red Bordeaux.  (Region: Graves, Bordeaux, France, Rating: Acceptable, Drink: now)
