Free Range Red Bordeaux 2005 is the last red boxed wine from Free Range Wines – we’ve already tried Free Range Merlot 2005 and Free Range Pinot Noir 2005. This red is quite different from the other two. Its aroma is slightly smoky, and has red berry and mocha notes. The flavor is the most approachable of the three FreeRange reds, with a big, juicy nature that blends cherry and oak, and leads into a slightly peppery finish.
Free Range Red Bordeaux 2005 is a blend of varietals, all from the Bordeaux region of France. It is composed of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Cabernet Franc. Whether you are a glass-of-red-wine-a-day drinker, or are looking for party wine that’s a step above the typical box (and quite a few bottles), this Bordeaux would be worth a try.
