France — Roussillon • $15.95 • 88.5/100

This is still a youthful-looking ruby-red, with hints of violet on the rim. Very ripe blueberry, raspberry and blackberry aromas centre floral and potpourri notes, vanilla, a hint of red licorice and burnt earth. Acidity is bright enough to balance the alcohol that gives a bit of warmth on the palate. Tannins are fine. The ripe fruit, that seems slightly liqueured on the palate, takes on a menthol lift in the fruity, tannic finish. There’s lots of life and substance here. • Tasted 2017-02-04 • LCBO id#195107 • Find it at your nearest LCBO • GLENCAIRN WINE MERCHANTS (Agent)
