Château Boston Margaux 2010 Bordeaux Red Wine, $24.64-$31.99, 88 points, poured a rich purple/red typical of crushed blackberries; the wine ring was clear and moderately broad.
Aromatically shy with only hints of plum, loam, sandalwood, and cedar.
Medium-plus and texturally rather smooth body with good acidity and firm layered tannins carried straight-forward flavors of the aromas with dominant violets, a hint of mint, and marjoram. Finished on a mysterious 11%-14% alcohol (think 13.5%) and soft easy spices.
Paired fine with my pasta and marinara with bacon.
