ROC DES ANGES RELIEFS 2013

Wine Region: Cotes du Roussillon, France

Grapes: Carignan, Grenache, Syrah

Tasting Notes

Ripe blueberry, spices, evocations of sage and thyme and stone. This wine brims with juicy, very ripe red berry accented by smoky, stony characteristics usually associated with schist-influenced reds. While glycerol-rich and almost lush in texture, this preserves fine vivacity and downright refreshment. In the palate-staining finish, a tart, fruit skin edge enhances the sense of invigoration while salinity serves for saliva inducement.
