Wine Review: This ruby colored wine from Carbonnieux opens with a cassis and plum bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and very easy to drink. The flavor profile is a mineral influenced black currant with notes of Spanish cedar. We also detected hints of plum. The finish is dry and its mild tannins drift away nicely. The Tasting Panel thought this paired well with Stuart’s steak treats. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The color has both a deep and shimmering intensity. The nose is a very subtle mix of black fruits, spices and empyreumatic notes. The attack on the palate is silky, delicate, smooth. The mid-palate is full-bodied, structured and concentrated. The pleasure rises to a crescendo throughout the tasting and finishes with a remarkable length on the palate. 2016 is definitely in the big league!
