Château Patris Saint Émilion Grand Cru 2009 Bordeaux, $32.84-$36.49, 92 points, appears as crushed black fruit, opaque at the core trending black currant red with a clear rim.
Picture yourself on the beach with a cedar sawmill cutting boards and making mulch just behind you; that is the aroma of this wine: sea breeze and cedar!
A not too tart cranberry/pomegranate with a juicy perfumed red and black berry flavor profile build on an acidic, mouth puckering tannin, and a medium-plus body; however with some air there is a transition to plum notes.
The finish carries the palate deep into an ascending spicy conclusion with hints of mint and anise.
