Château Greysac Médoc 2009 Bordeaux Red Wine With My Mediterranean Meal

Sadly, this wine review has taken a somewhat neurotic turn dictated by a number of friends which have requested Greek spinach Pita from "your" pretend chef. So, though I will not explain the process of making this "in high demand" pie, I will provide some photos of that process, and finish with the first picture above and a wine review below, but the ingredients were (eggs, leeks, chives, spinach, black pepper Feta cheese, flaky filo dough, and lightly salted butter).
 Château Greysac Médoc 2009 Bordeaux Red Wine, $13.29-$18.99, 88 points, began in the glass opaque at the core trending deep ruby, and finally a youthful black currant red with a transparent rim.
Earthy and floral, the aroma was pleasant enough.
The medium-plus body carried bright acidity with nicely layered moderate-plus tannin.
Flavors of violets and tanned leather were early palate dominant, and were followed by more subtle boysenberry, blackberry, and coffee notes.
Finished long with an accelerating tannin, 14% alcohol, and white pepper.
Varietals are Merlot (50%), Cabernet Sauvignon (45%), Cabernet Franc (3%), and Petit Verdot.
