"Solid, with a toasty beam that is well-integrated amid the gently mulled black currant and blackberry fruit flavors. Light charcoal and tobacco notes add depth and length to the finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2020. 20,000 cases made, 3,000 cases imported. -JM"(WS)

"Attractive aromas of ripe red plums and cassis in straight-shooting mode. The palate has an attractively juicy core of bright fruit flavor, framed in lithe, easy tannins. Try from 2020." (JS)

"This perfumed, fruity wine has mint flavors from the wood aging that point up the ripe berry fruits and attractive tannic structure. The dry core is set to soften into the generous fruitiness. Drink from 2022. -Roger Voss " (WE)

Winery Notes:
Chateau de Macard belongs to Alain Aubert. It is located at Saint Magne de Castillon, near from Saint-Emilion appellation.

Ripe and dense, but fresh, with silky-textured plum, blackberry and blueberry fruit carried by sweet spice and maduro tobacco notes.
