2008 Grand Vin De Bordeaux from the Chateau de Seguin

Uncorked a 2008 French Bordeaux from Chateau De Sequin for this foggy Red Wine Sunday. 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet and 10% Cabernet Franc in this bottle. About $10 over at Trader Joes, this wine won a Bronze award at the 2010 Paris Agricultural show.

The first taste brought on some nice raisin and strawberry flavors with a bit of a bite from the tannins (most likely from the Cabernet). Ahh- but it is getting better with a second glass. I've added a bit to the sauteed mushrooms and onions that will top the grilled T-Bones tonite. Can't wait to have a mouthful of the Bordeaux and steak! Cheers!
