Guess a wine, WSET Diploma note

I just tried again to test my skills, this time I guessed it blind on area and vintage. Can you guess this wine? Note after WSET Diploma Systematic Approach to Tasting.

Appearence: Clear, medium ruby with legs

Nose: Clean, medium (-) with developing aromas characteristics of raspberry, rose petal, cherry, dry wood and green bell peber.

Palate: dry medium acidity, coarse medium tannins, medium (+) alcohol, medium (-) body and medium (+) flavor characteristics. Notes of green bell peber mostly, stalky and dry wood, raspberry and red cherry. Medium (-) finish that dries out on the palate, unbalanced.

Comclusion: acceptable to good, lacking fruit concentration and balance. Ready to drink and will not improve.

I guessed 2007 Bordeaux, because of the lack of concentration and fruit. Acceptable guess.

The wine was: 2007 Château Saint Genès, Premieres Cotes de Blaye, a Château owned by Bernard Magrez
