Château Marjosse 2009 Grand Vin Bordeaux, $12.69-$13.99, 87 points, typifies a sound red-table wine, having a rosewood color trending opaque at the core and touches the glass clear at the rim.
The earthy nose has hints of blackberry and coffee-grinds.
Full bodied, the texture is a bit thick for me, but has enough acidity to complement the plum and licorice flavors; the tannin too is enough to hold an edge until the explosive peppery finish.

Never to be called the New Hampshire Mountain man, I was still able to hike several dozen of NH's mountains in the ten years or so I was able to hike them.
From Mount Garfield (White Mountains), a hazy valley opens to the south.
As a "birding" or "birder's" note, Mt. Garfield was where I so pleasantly saw my first Gray jay (far more friendly than a Blue jay, with a more graceful flight).
