About

Ever tried a Saint Macaire before? Nope, neither had we! Turns out it’s a little known red Bordeaux variety that has become practically extinct in France but seems to be kicking along in Australia and also in California.

Stylistically it’s pretty round and full-bodied, with a Petit Verdot-like nose of violets and spice.

It’s mighty drinkable actually, and with a $14 price tag and the follow up to the Trophy-winning 2013 release, there’s no reason not to give this different drop a whirl!

What It Tastes Like

Lots of spice and herbs and black fruits on the nose. The palate is rich and warming, with lots of fruit, lots of oak, lots of tannins, but thankfully no excessive alcohol heat. It’s really quite fun to drink actually - soft and plummy, plenty of spice. It’s a little here and a little there but for the price there’s a lot of appeal. Nice drinking.
