Château Filia De Grand Mayne Saint-Émilion Grand Cru 2009 Bordeaux Red Wine, $25.49-$29.99, 91+ points, presented itself clear about the glass rim with a brief appearance of crushed black currant purple/red, but a deep black wine dominated most of the glass.
Subtle aromas of cedar and earth with a floral hint were pleasant.
This was an easy-drinking nearly full bodied red wine with good acidity and lovely round tannin.
Black currant, rose, plum, and coffee flavors were near perfectly meshed into a moderately smooth textured Merlot (80%), with 10% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Finished fair with some heat (14% alcohol), an intensifying tannin, a touch of mint, and white pepper.
After yesterday's "Sideways" Merlot, this was a pleasant supplanter.
