Chateau Maurac Haut Médoc 2000

$50 I am not very familiar with Chateau Maurac. It's not one of the famous commune. Haut Médoc is cabernet sauvignon dominated bordeaux on the left bank. It kind of smells like barnyard and leather, which is not a bad smell, since it is well balanced with the fragrance of mushroom and black currant. Medium bodied, dry, balanced acid, light tannin, delicate, toast, mineral, meaty. The whole experience is not intense, gentle, smooth, and well balance, but not complex. Medium finish.

The wine is above average, but it's a little boring for me. This wine is good to drink on its own, but I bet it will also pair well with braised pork/beef/lamb stew.
