Natalie's Review

Abbaye De Sylva Plana La Closeraie Carignan Syrah Grenache Mourvèdre 2005, A.C. Faugères, Midi, France: Vintages Wine Panel: Another fine example of what old-vines Carignan can bring to a blend (the other partners are Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre). Deep purple in color. Aromas are a mélange of cassis, vanilla bean, garrigue, plum, and cured meats. Dry, balanced, fresh, and impeccably made with very good structure. Lots of berry and garrigue flavors on the palate. Enjoy this medium full-bodied wine with grilled lamb with sage. My note: Rich and voluptuous with seductively fleshy black fruit. Mocha, cassis and blackberry mingle on the palate. Full-bodied and smooth with a good finish. 104737 14% XD 750 mL  $19.95 Score: 90/100. February 28, 2009  Full Review
