Val Berger Fitou 2009
"A medium-bodied, elegant and well-balanced wine with aromas of red cherry fruits and spice. Deep garnet with hints of crimson, this wine reveals blackcurrants and spicy aromas. It is round and elegant with soft tannins. To be served with casseroles, grilled meat, game and cheese. Perfect for drinking now or will continue to improve for another 4 years."
"A very nice what I call winter red. Aromas of dark fruits, forest floor and cherry. The palate is quite impressive with strawberry, dark berry and hints of damp earth. Medium-bodied with a spicy note on a quite long finish."
--Steve Pollack, wine buyer for the Chairman's Selection program
