About

92

Dark red-ruby. Black fruits, licorice, menthol and violet on the nose, accented by a peppery topnote. Plush, savory and fairly full-bodied; a seriously mouthfilling, silky blend with a smoky, gamey, salty Syrah element and no rough edges whatsoever. Noteworthy flavor intensity and depth here, and also more horizontal than the Cabernet and Malbec Reserva bottlings. Finishes very long, with substantial but thoroughly ripe tannins and lingering notes of licorice, spices and violet. These top wines from Domaine Bousquet share a very subtle and successful use of used oak and offer outstanding value in an Old World style. (15% alcohol)
