2019 Heritage de Chateau le Boscq Saint-Estephe

$16 at Costco.

Clear, dark purple in color, nice legs.

Aroma includes leather or cigar box, blackberry, and oak.

Nice, smooth in the mouth, subtle at first and thinking that it will die a quick Merlot-like death, but then it surprises by developing nice leather and dark fruit, with the heat building up in the back of the mouth and it has a strong finish.

A decent, everyday sipping wine for sure.
