Saturday Night Red Wine – 2017 Tentation De Dalem – Fronsac

Tentation De Dalem French Grand Vin De Bordeaux

We found this wine at Total Wine priced at around $19.99.

I recommend allowing the wine to breathe. The color is black as night. The nose is heavy with oak. It tastes of dark cherry, rich plum, and a walk in the woods on an Autumn evening. It’s as dry as the desert, so have a glass of water handy.

This wine tasting took me back to the week my husband and I spent touring vineyards in the French countryside on our honeymoon many moons ago. French wine is always an adventurous pleasure!
