Château Gazin Pomerol 2010 Red Bordeaux, $116.99-$129.99, 96 points, pours frighteningly thick, but though full-bodied, this dry red wine is filled with the expected velvety texture without being syrupy at all, rather this complex wine delights with a rose, red cherry flavor that only begins the enjoyment, but I've gotten ahead of myself.
Château Gazin Pomerol 2010 Red Bordeaux, presents itself opaque throughout, transitioning only at the leggy glass wall where a traditional crushed black currant purple-red can be seen near the transparent rim.
A profuse aroma of cedar, clove, cinnamon, coffee liqueur, and roses cascade onto the palate along with that red cherry, add boysenberry for richness and bright mulberry for vibrancy.
Expect moderate-plus acidity with an unexpectedly balanced layering of tannin that is consistent with the velvet texture.
Finished very long on powerful black and white pepper, heat (14.5%), and mint.
Varietals were 86% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Cabernet Franc.
