Les Vignerons de Tautavel Vingrau, Côtes du Roussillon Villages Syrousse 2012, France, Wine Casual
Tasting Note: A red blend with hair on its chest.
Deep-intensity ruby in color with some garnet around the edges, this wine has an aromatic nose of blackberry, raspberry, red currant and violet.
On the palate the dry, full-bodied wine has a velvety texture with ripe, grippy, medium-plus tannin and concentrated, black-fruit flavors.
There is balance between the fruit and tannin in this stainless-steel-aged wine.
