2015 Chateau de Seguin – Bordeaux

As my wife and I were going through Trader Joe’s, we noticed that they rearranged the wine section again (argh!).  When I shop for wine I really like when the store organizes the wine by variety as opposed to region.  The Trader Joe’s we go to use to organize by variety, now they changed to region.  So, as I was walking around confused and disoriented, my always calm and cool wife Paula found a really nice Bordeaux to try.  The moment I opened this wine I knew it would be good.  The aroma has some nice fruity overtones with light hints of oak.  The initial start or front side of this wine has great plum and grape notes.  As French wines go this is not too dry.  I really liked the ending to this wine, soft and lasting.  This wine goes with just about anything but especially red meats and tomato sauce.  We had the wine with burgers, grilled lamb chops, bacon wrapped jalapeños and it was great.  I give this wine 4 glasses.  

About myredwineguys

My red wine guys, Jim and Rich, have been drinking and comparing red wines together for the last 10 years. We drink reds exclusively (except for champagne during New Year’s Eve celebration's or special occasions). In our search to find the best red wine for the buck, we are constantly buying and drinking a variety of reds. Frequently, we see many of our favorite reds increase in price (making them impractical to buy and consume with the dismal economy). This motivates us to try and compare lesser known reds from a variety of wineries. We are constantly telling our friends where to buy and save on these great reds. One weekend over a bottle of red wine (of course), we decided to share our recommendations with the world via a blog (with the support of our wives who really think this is another way for us to drink more red wine). We are going to be making road trips up the coast and sharing our opinions on some great California Reds. Jim is a retired Navy Senior Chief now working as a Navy Technical Rep. His world travels have given him the opportunity to taste wines on different continents. He finds himself often comparing them to his favorite region – Napa Valley’s Oakville/Rutherford districts that produce some of the world’s best Cabernet Sauvignon's. Richard is a musician who grew up in Santa Maria with a family rich with red wine tradition. According to the family legends, his grandfather used to make wine out of grapefruit when grapes were not available. He grew up drinking and making wine with his father and other Italian families in the central coast, long before there were grape vines in the area. In fact, the reason his family located to California was to make wine! Thank you for visiting our site! We hope you enjoy a glass of exceptional red wine soon!
