Who said Halloween treats were not for adults?
Crozes-Hermitage is the homeplace of Syrah, an area where it's impetuously expressed. Domaine des Lises' Maxime Graillot brought about its charming crisp, elegant tannins, and pleasant red fruit in his beautiful 2012 vintage
($35.00), that was made to provide instant pleasure and gluttony upon release.
We love its dark berries, candied licorice and spice-tinged nose, its dense yet seamless mouthfeel, with lively acidity giving it cut and lift, and its lingering finish of bitter chocolate.
A Stephen Tanzer favorite that earned a score of 92 points
Frederic Pourtalié makes some of the best fruit-driven wines of Languedoc-Roussillon. To quote Robert Parker, ''Montcalmès is a brilliant estate'' and you will totally agree once who have a sip of this PG rated treat! What's a 93 Parker score
like? ''It has knockout aromas and flavours of ripe black fruit, dried pepper and exotic spices, and shows the warmth of the region, yet always stays fresh and balanced''.Les Terrasses du Larzac 2011
