This Cab is a fruit bomb! Dark purple color, an explosion of blackberry, plums and cherries.
Soft tannins, long finish, a really delightful wine.
Paired with baby back ribs, potatoes and corn on the cob. A labor day bbq favorite.

Inky ruby. Mineral-accented aromas of fresh boysenberry, cherry, violet and olive paste pick up a smoky nuance in the glass. Deep-pitched black and blue fruit flavors reveal licorice, mocha and floral accents as the wine stretches out. Powerful but lively as well, finishing with repeating olive and floral character and slowly emerging, dusty tannins. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, September 2019) — 14 days ago
Bright violet. Smoke-tinged dark berries and cherry on the fragrant nose, along with a hint of cracked pepper. In a fleshy, forward style, showing good depth and energy to the gently sweet cherry and blackberry flavors. Smooth tannins frame the finish, which leaves a hint of spiciness behind.

This benchmark domaine’s entry-level Moulin-à-Vent displays deep cherry and dark berry character, along with the power and structure that defines the appellation. The 2017 is fruit-forward and a bit of air brings out vibrant mineral and floral qualities while taming its youthful tannins. $24.00 (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, September 2019) — 4 days ago
Bright purple. Lively blueberry, cherry, licorice, olive paste and smoked meat scents are sharpened by a subtle mineral quality. Smooth and energetic on the palate, offering intense dark berry, salty olive and floral pastille flavors that show very good depth and building spiciness. Finishes impressively long and precise, with resonating florality and steadily building tannins. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, September 2019) — 14 days ago
Bright violet. Spice-accented cherry and blackberry aromas are complemented by vanilla and floral pastille nuances. Supple dark fruit and spicecake flavors reveal hints of licorice and mocha on the back half. Velvety and broad on the persistent finish, which features even tannins and lingering floral and spice qualities. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, September 2019) — 14 days ago

Deep ruby. Lively aromas of fresh, spice-tinged dark berries and candied flowers pick up a suggestion of smoked meat as the wine opens up. Clean and nervy in style, offering energetic blackberry and bitter cherry flavors and a hint of cracked pepper. Finishes sweet, silky and long, leaving a note of violet pastille behind.

Saturated ruby. Fresh black and blue fruits and violet on the nose, with a spicy element adding vivacity. Pliant cassis, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors open up slowly and become sweeter with air. Smooth tannins shape the clinging finish, which echoes the blue fruit and pepper notes.
