Thirsty Thursday on Friday

Today it's France again, Bordeaux to be exact.  It's a good wine for the wet and chilly weather we are having here.

Chateau Micalet 2005 Haut-Medoc  - Grand Vin de Bordeaux

45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc

On the nose there's smoke, tar, a bit of vanilla and some minerality, wet stone?  I like it already.  In the mouth there is the taste of tart cherries.  I can't remember the last time I had a red with low alcohol and this one has 12.5%.  Overall, I like it.
