2004 Celler Del Roure Les Alcusses
"The 2005 Les Alcusses is a blend of Monastrell, Tempranillo, Syrah, and Mando aged 4 months in Allier barrels. Purple-colored, it boasts a splendid nose of forest floor, truffle, tobacco, blueberry, and blackberry. On the palate the wine is firm with ample ripe fruit but narrows out in the finish. Otherwise it would have achieved an outstanding rating."
