Château Carignan Grand Vin Cadillac Premières Côtes De (Red) Bordeaux, $16.11-$24.99, 89 points, begins in the glass as a deep purple red color that mergers with the leggy glass wall with a transparent rim.
A pleasant aroma of red and black cherry with floral notes and a hint of alcohol (14.5%) wafts rather intense.
Full bodied with good acidity and richly approachable tannin support a balanced flavor profile of plum, boysenberry, cedar, and coffee notes.
Finishes fair on a trailing palate with a touch of spice and heat.
When my friend with the "Escalade" drops over for lunch, I'll be sure to grace the table with a bottle of Grand Vin Cadillac 8-)
