2015 Domaine Manarine Les Terres Saintes Cotes du Rhone
$ 17.99
A blend of mostly Grenache with a bit of Syrah from average aged 55 year old vines. This is one of the more interesting examples of CDR that you will try. A nose filled with incredible layers of flavors: herbs de provence, tar, leather, licorice, tobacco, plums and cherries. With 14.5% ABV, you would expect the mouth to be hot and tannic but there is well integrated acid that is lively and plucky. Still gaping mouthfuls of fruit with loads of powerful and a deep finish
