Domaine de Cassagnau, Rouge 2014, Languedoc, France
A Pays d’Oc wine from the Languedoc which blends the Rhone varieties Syrah and Grenache with Bordeaux’s Merlot, to rather good easy-drinking effect. The wine is all about smooth, plum and blackcurrant fruit on the nose, a creaminess but also a hint of spice, just a little fragrant herbal lift too. On the palate that creamy full-bodied fruit continues, smooth and supple though finishing with crunch and freshness with only 13% alcohol.
