Château Sénéjac Cru Bourgeois Haut-Médoc 2010 Red Bordeaux, $20.74-$26.99, 89 points, begins at the core as an almost opaque ruby color trending more black currant purple/red and clear at the rim.
Black cherry, blackberry, and blueberry with subtle hints of cedar and petrol on the nose is just okay for me.
An early palate sleek and smooth mouth-feel transitions the near full body toward its slightly astringent tannin throughout, while good acidity lends proper structure. The trailing palate finishes along with petrol, menthol, black licorice, black cherry and coffee notes.
The finish, though quite long, lacks anything climatic, but this wine excels as a red dinner wine, not so much as a stand-alone-wine.
Varietals are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc.
