Château Fonréaud Red Bordeaux Blend Listrac-Médoc 2002

Member Review by ONUMello:

Full, aromatic nose of cassis, blackberry & rose petal. Initially cassis on the palate, then I got hit by a sour cherry freight train that is really almost a bit over the top. Continuing on just a sour finish. This may be a bit past its prime, or may need some time to open up a bit. I'll post again if it improves over the next day or two. Having been open a few days now, the wine has changed somewhat. Plum, cassis, & pizza sausage on the nose, maybe a bit of plastic too. Much less interesting flavors, although the acidity is down quite a bit. Sour cherry & plastic, still a sour finish. Still an 80, although that's probably generous.
