2005 Les Heretiques Vin de Pays

This goes for roughly eight bucks but was knocked down to four.

A fairly tight nose - I suppose it's a bit of cherry in there, almost in a cough medicine sorta way.

Well, I've long felt that when you buy a cheap French wine you can be confident you're going to get something decent, balanced, and basically one-dimensional. If you don't want to spend a lot of money and don't want something to "study" - there's my blanket recommendation. Cherry, oak, and a good punch of cigar.

A cigar quality lingers on the finish.

That was after the bottle was first opened. Around three hours later this bottle pulled a major u-turn. A strange funkiness dominates the nose - almost a mushroomy quality. The palate too has taken on an unpleasant mushroom like quality, rotten cherry, all soaked in chewing tobacco spit. Down the drain with the rest of the bottle.

For four bucks you can probably grab it, but drink it quickly after opening my friends.

Wine: 6 at first, down to 2.
Value: Nah.
