Chateau Du Courlat Cuvee Jean-Baptiste Lussac-Saint-Emilion 2010 Bordeaux Red Wine (Merlot), $24.99, 91 points, was a deep crushed black currant purple/red with a thin wine ring at the leggy glass wall.
Aromas of black currant, sweet plum, and a floral note were good.
Medium-plus bodied extra-dry Merlot carried good acidity, fine and firm tannin, flavors of blackberry, black currant, plum, and sweet milling spices.
Texturally a tad tough from beginning to the long finish possessed by a hot 15.5% alcohol and strident white pepper.
Paired perfectly with my spiced rubbed rare rib-eye steak.
