Château Grand-Pontet St. Émilion Grand Cru Classé 2008 Bordeaux Red Wine, $35.69-$41.99, 92 points, appeared crushed blackberry trending deep ruby with a purple/orange hue toward the clear rim.
The nose was a complexity of earth, leather, espresso, plum, and black currant which was good.
The medium-plus body carried excellent acidity with pleasantly firm tannin and flavors that mirrored the aroma, but added nuanced mint, eucalyptus, and blackberry.
Finished long on white and cayenne pepper.
