ok.... it's not Classe', but this was a great wine tonight which I had with wonderful authentic Greek food at Zorba's Greek Restaurant here in the Art Museum area of Philadelphia. Deliciously deep purplish/ruby, tons of velvet - black currants/licorice - thick and luscious. Well balanced for an "almost" full blown modern wine - according to my palate. I only wanted the finish to be a little longer - my only criticism - but a well made wine for someone like me to venture into unknown Bordeaux territory, let alone a Merlot based wine. I would definitely buy this wine again. $34 with PA tax.
