Chateau Puech-Haut 'Saint-Drezery' 2013 Prestige Red Wine, $13.59-$18.99, 89 points, poured core black quickly grading purple/red toward the clear wine ring and glass bowl with heavy sheeting.
Aromas of lavender, toasty plum, and blackberry needed some swishing and swirling, but were good.
Full-bodied with mouthwatering acidity and firm, slightly astringent tannin carried flavors reflective of the aromas plus hints of tobacco, fig, and an orangey citrus note.
Finished well on a 15% alcohol inspirited spice.
Paired fine with my BLT.
Varietals were a Rhône blend (primarily Syrah).
