2. Chateau Maris Syrah la Touge (2010)

« Prev Next » 2 of 5
Average price: $12.95 from 1 store
Biodynamic 85% syrah, 15% grenache. A touch reduced on the nose with decidedly stinky base notes along with light and rather elegant floral perfumes all meeting over a core of leathery and slightly dried plum fruits. Just a bit thick on entry, this has plenty of fine grained tannins to help add volume and support the fruit in the mouth, though the acids are on the softer side. There's a core of fine mineral and dried red fruit flavors along with notes of blue plums and a hint of ink in the mouth. The fruit gains complexity and brightness on the rather long finish which shows just how much fruit this has as the acid and earthy tannins finally are revealed. This would be fabulous with gamy grilled pork or wild boar. 88pts
