Château Ferran Pessac-léognan 2010 Red Bordeaux, $24.29-$26.99, 91 points, begins in the glass as a dark red trending purple with a thin watery rim.
An exceptional bouquet of sweet cooking spice, toast, earth, plum, and black cherry, is rich and greatly pleases.
The near full body of 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Sauvignon carries strident acidity and prominent, but approachable tannin.
Though just a bit green, mushroom and good flavors of cherry and coffee liqueur with pomegranate, plum, and a touch of black currant manage the fruit well, and trail into a long finish of white pepper, chalky plum, and mint.
