Olivier Bernstein Bonnes Mares 2011 750mL
Bright, full red. Lovely lift to the complex aromas of red fruits, woodsmoke, minerals and underbrush. Silky and harmonious, with explosive flavors of small wild berries accented by white and black pepper. Fresh acidity leavens the wine's impressive thickness of texture. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and a positive peppery element. Terrific verve here, but I'd wait five years.
