Château de Camarsac Bordeaux Supérieur 2003 - $13



The final wine we tasted last night - a French Bordeaux. The nose was tight and smelled of, well, rubbing alcohol, so we had to swirl it and let it breathe for a bit before we could actually smell or taste anything other than that.

When it did open up, it still smelled a bit hot, but it did have flavors of bitter tobacco and was quite tannic. We wondered if we should have decanted it a bit, or if we should have chosen a different wine to follow the Rodney Strong Meritage.
