A.O.P. MINERVIOS

2014

France

grenache red blend

these vines sit at the bottom of La Montagne Noire (black mountain), a site that has been growing Grenache for over 2000 years. Old vineyards like these are precious treasures that are tragically being ripped out all over France, but Ben Darnault keeps his plot and produces amazing wine.

****

floral notes on the nose, with some rose and hints of cedar wood. initial raspberry jam with a caramel coating finish. both blackberry and raspberry o the palate, as well as some dark oak and modern spice.

smooth. clean. delicious.
