2008 Chateau Doyac Haut-Medoc


Bordeaux, France / $16 Retail

A blend of 70 percent Merlot and 30 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine was aged in 25 percent new French barriques for one year. It offers soft aromas of forest floor, leather, cedar and black coffee, followed by firm tannins, earthy flavors, rustic notes and hints of spice and plum. In its current condition, the wine is more restrained than opulent, but the young Bordeaux will improve given time to develop in the cellar. Drink it with rare steaks, hearty roasts and meat stews. Buy it at: Matassa's Market and Acquistapace's Covington Supermarket. Drink it at: Stella!, Tommy's Cuisine, Tommy's Wine Bar, Orleans Grapevine Wine Bar and Bistro and Andrea's Restaurant. — Brenda Maitland
