Château Brane-Cantenac Margaux 2011 Bordeaux Red Wine, $51.99-$69.99, 90 points, was nearly black except near the clear wine ring where the color trended deep purple/red.
Aromatic cedar, sandalwood, rose, and black fruit were quite pleasant.
Medium-plus body managed good acidity with firm, yet very tolerable tannins for such a young Bordeaux red wine.
Flavors of boysenberry, blackberry, kirsch, truffle, and tobacco were very good.
Finished well on the trailing palate with easy spice notes and a well integrated 13% alcohol.
I enjoyed this wine more on the second day.
Varietals were 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc.
