2014 Domaine de La Reserve d'O Bilbo

Estate: Domaine de La Reserve d'O

Region: Languedoc Les Terrasses du Larzac, Languedoc, Languedoc Roussillon, France

Tasting Note:January 19, 2017

Light to medium ruby red. Slightly stinky attack on the nose, almost like cured meats. Wears off in around 30 minutes or so and gets a little candied cherries, spices and a little smoky. Completely different palate than the nose. Low plus tannins (4.5/10) and low to medium bodied. Bright palate with soft red cherries and bright acidity but balanced. A bit of bret, with white pepper and roses. A little rustic in the medium finish with some wet rocks.

Blend of 45% Grenache, 45% Syrah and 10% Cinsault. From the Arboras commune.
