Chateau d'Arcins Haut-Medoc 2008 Bordeaux Red Wine, $16.79-$22.99, 86
I'm always surprised when wine aromas have among them grape notes among the black fruit, but there it was, with hints of marzipan and licorice.
Medium to medium-plus body, good acidity, mellow, yet substantial tannins were supportive, but comfortable.
Flavors of bacon fat, boysenberry, hints of tobacco with mint were okay, if a bit thin.
Finished well on easy spice notes, the trailing palate, and a respectable 13% alcohol.
