Chateau d'Arcins Haut-Medoc 2008 Bordeaux Red Wine

Chateau d'Arcins Haut-Medoc 2008 Bordeaux Red Wine, $16.79-$22.99, 86+ points, poured nearly core black grading purple/red toward the still broad clear wine ring at the leggy glass bowl.
I'm always surprised when wine aromas have among them grape notes among the black fruit, but there it was, with hints of marzipan and licorice.
Medium to medium-plus body, good acidity, mellow, yet substantial tannins were supportive, but comfortable.
Flavors of bacon fat, boysenberry, hints of tobacco with mint were okay, if a bit thin.
Finished well on easy spice notes, the trailing palate, and a respectable 13% alcohol.
