Chateau La Croix Moniduc Bordeaux 2008, France - $36

We purchased a bottle of this wine at Olivia's for $36/bottle. It is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. It is also offered at Paggi House for $10/glass.

Aroma - blackberries, a little musty
Taste - blackberries, a little black tea, Old World, moderate to strong tannins

Good with marinated olives, pomme frites, and oysters! Clashed a little with my scallops, but went great with the olive oil and Parmesan cheese risotto.
