Château Les Hauts De Smith Pessac-Léognan 2010 Bordeaux Red Wine, $30.59-$35.99, 91+ points (varietals are 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon), began near black at the core trending deep ruby with a brief appearance of sunburst orange before the transparent rim.
Rose and cedar with a whiff of alcohol (14.5%) on the nose was okay for me.
Medium-plus body with loads of tannin and good acidity carried licorice, black grape, blackberry/currant, and cola notes toward a long finish of spice, plum, and grape skin with some heat.
