2005 Fife Max Cuvee - $6.99

Despite being completely dead on the nose, I still enjoy this... which is not the norm for aromatically challenged wines. That said, this has a nice earthy, tannic flavor profile with some light berry components. Another great daily drinker.

It's worth noting that despite the label noting the aging in French oak, there's no oak monster here.

thumbs up - 85

  1. The stores in the bay area have the 2006. It's also dead on the nose, but not yet drinkable. It can't stand to lose by another year in the bottle.
