Drinking Tonight: Les Tuileries

A basic 2009 Bordeaux, 65% Cabernet and 35% Merlot, for under $20. Having this with steak and onions off the grill.

Color: a good Bordeaux garnet red.

Aroma: oak/truffle earth notes, then cherry and blackberry fruit.

Taste: Tart fruit – nothing wrong, but nothing extraordinary either. 2009 was a good year, but for a petit chateau like this you can’t expect the world. OK with the steak, better with the onions.  Next time I’ll serve this with kabobs.
