Grape: Grenache Noir and Syrah
Category: Red Wine
Location: LCBO General List
Region: Côtes Du Rhône
Format: 750 mL
Producer: Cellier Des Dauphins
Alcohol: 13.5% Alcohol/Vol.
A simple wine with ripe fruits & spice. Taste more like an Australian Shiraz. Score: 79/100
Tasting Note: Medium ruby in colour with good acidity, mild tannin, a medium intense nose & an average length on the finish. This wine features: dried prunes, ripe tamarins, cloves, white pepper, sage & eucalyptus.
Negatives: Some heat coming from the listed 13.5% alcohol, plus too much ripeness.
Interesting Point: Use Bordeaux style wine stemware as when I tried with Syrah style one, the wine showed a lot of jammy cooked notes.
Pairings: Drink this now or in the next couple of years on its own or pair it with Lamb Steak in Mint Sauce
My Opinion: Not Recommended
