Chateau Paret, Castillon-Côtes de Bordeaux 2014
This wine is a prime example of the other side of Bordeaux - stellar everyday values that hold up well after a few years in the cellar. Mostly Merlot with just a touch of the two Cabernets, it shows a medium texture and structure with smoky tar, graphite, and bouquet garni along with ripe plums, dried currants, and pepper. It's a lovely weeknight wine from an often underappreciated Bordeaux vintage.
