Domaine de Bila-Haut L'Esquerda Côtes du Roussillon Villages Grenache Blend 2014

9.1

Drank 4/14/17. Decent pairing with chicken sausage and lentils.

Big nose of raspberry bramble, cherry, underbrush, and Blackberry liquer. Red fruits on the palate, with herbs, spice, and cherry. Medium to firm tannins on the finish, dominated by red fruit. A touch hot. I beleive WA went like 96 pts on that. Can't quite get there, but a nice wine for the price (roughly $27).

4/22/8/3/4 + 50 = 91 Pts.

Weekly Wednesday Wine Committee. Incredible hosting by Joe. 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds, 1 dessert wine, all tasted blind.

This is the white wine that changed the most from start to finish. It slowly revealed oak, especially a heavy “toast” note to it. With no idea what to call it, I guessed Australian chardonnay. Sweet oak (definitely not too much), round mouthfeel, and honeyed cashews. This deserves to be served alone to be fully appreciated.
