Château Citran Haut-Médoc Grand Vin 2009 Bordeaux Red Wine, $24.66-$28.99, 92 points, appeared near black at the core, and trended bright crushed black fruit while the color transitioned pomegranate red toward a broad clear rim.
Orange-zest, a touch of toasty cedar, and blackberry were pleasant on the nose.
The medium-plus body carried good acidity, firm tannin with coffee, mulberry, blackberry, hints of cardamom, and bay leaf flavors.
Finished fair on a trailing palate, accelerating tannin, black pepper, and cayenne.
Varietals are 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot, with an unusual importers alcohol rating of 11%-14%.
