Mouton Cadet Rouge 2008, Bordeaux, France - $8.99

This red wine by Baron Phillippe de Rothschild is a blend of 65% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 15% Cabernet Franc. It retails for $8.99/bottle at Whole Foods.

Taste - dry, dark fruit, black tea, moderate tannins

This definitely isn't a fruit bomb - the dryness of the wine comes across first, but the tannins are not overbearing. It's a decent wine for the price.
