Wine Review - Chateau La Rose Saint Bonnet, Medoc 2009
The third bottle of wine that I tried from my WSJ Wine shipment was a red from Bordeaux, France -- Chateau La Rose Saint Bonnet, Medoc 2009.
The description of the bottle included in my case as described on WSJ Wine's website:
Deep red-purple in the glass. Attractive aromas of dark berry fruit and ripe plum, with subtle spicy oak notes. Lovely layers of blackberry, cassis and tobacco on a palate. Smooth and full bodied. Decant an hour before serving. 14% vol.
WSJwine Item #0248509 $20.99/bottle
My opinion - This is definitely a wine for a red meat kind of dish, preferably steak or something equally as hearty. It's a rich wine.
Suggested food pairings:
Bacon Wrapped Teriyaki Beef Bites
Grilled Marinated London Broil
