Natalie's Review

Domaine Cazes L'excellence De Triniac, Latour De France Carignan Syrah Grenache 2005, A.C. Côtes du Roussillon-Villages, Midi, France: Vintages Wine Panel: A Gold Medal winner at the 2007 Concours Général Agricole in Paris, France. A wine that shows just how good Carignan-based wine can be when the producer uses fruit from old vines. This blend of old vine Carignan, Syrah and Grenache is filled with aromas of blackberry, violet, underbrush, pie crust and coffee. Made in a very modern style with the fruit supported by gentle acids and moderate tannins. This medium- to full-bodied wine will reward 2-3 years in a cellar, or try it tonight with roast beef and root vegetables. My note: Rich, warm and plummy like a soft blanket or a warm embrace ... or both. Deep plush damson plums wrapped in gorgeous smoky goodness. Full-bodied and supple. Start a fire, pour a glass. Drink: 2008-2014. 103689 14% D 750 mL  $16.95 Score: 90/100. February 28, 2009  Full Review
