Châteaux Petit Bocq Saint-Estèphe Médoc 2009 Bordeaux, $23.79-$27.99, 90 points, appears clear black currant and ruby in color with a broad clear rim.
Pleasant aromas of cigar box, black fruit, and a floral tone greet your olfactory sense.
The medium body carries near perfect acidity, with as yet, a too tight tannic assault; though I'm enjoying this wine now, I'm thinking that some time in the cellar will improve this dry red wine for most red wine drinkers.
Profiling tart red cherry, strawberry, and juicy boysenberry, this Bordeaux robustly satiates as a red-table wine rather than a stand-alone wine.
The long finish is the trailing palate, and just hints at spice.
