Red Wine

Le Secret Des Capitelles Saint-Chinian Cave Des Vignerons De Saint-Chinian 2009, A.C., Midi, France: Vintages Wine Panel: Saint-Chinian is considered to be the oldest winemaking area in the Midi region, going back to Roman times. This wine sports a fresh raspberry nose, with flavours of black plum, berry, dried herbs, cola and tar spinning on the palate with a bit of spritz – all leading to a spicy finish. A medium-bodied red with nice harmony and length. Très bon. My note: A full-bodied with a soft velvet texture. Love the enticing cherry notes and dark fruits. Supple and slippery good. Terrific price! Drink: 2011-2014. 156299 14.40% XD 750 mL  $14.95 Score: 87/100. February 5, 2011 Full Review
