Abbaye de Tholomies Minervois 2004

Member Review by isha:

I like this wine because it brings the funk. Nose: Barnyard, bacon, sheep, hay, dirt, smokey cafe mocha, stinky leather. Palate: Raspberry pommegranate fruit qualities, pepper and spice on the back-palate. Still has some tanic backbone. Short finish, missing some body. The wine is rather light-weight in the mouth, and a tad too thin for a higher rating. I wonder if other vintages are more complete; 1999 being a tough year for weather in Minervois. I paid 18 dollars for this wine, and was pleased with the product. A poor man's Cote Rotie.

(B) A hearty red wine from the Minervois sub-region of the Languedoc. Syrah, Grenache and a bit of MourvŠdre. Packed with mineral, blackberries, fresh earth, licorice and tobacco. A lot of wine packed into this bottle that's not to be missed if you're into full-bodied, intense reds.
