2006 Chateau Bois Redon

(France, Bordeaux, Bordeaux Superieur)

This is a soft mild Bordeaux.  The nose has red cherry, anisette and some soft floral hints.  I get a little industrial feel in the nose. The color is more pinkish than I would like to see in a Bordeaux.  The palate is velvety with very little tannins on the start and they kick in a touch on the mid palate. The palate starts soft with green veggies and a little cherry.  This wine is not big fruit on the start and has almost no oak or wood taste to it.  The mid palate quickly transitions to a cigar pipe tobacco taste and is a little bitter on the end. This wine is not an explosion of tastes but for 10 bucks a bottle it is a nice soft Bordeaux that is worth trying.
