Cave de Rasteau Côtes du Rhône-Villages Rasteau Tradition 2007

Member Review by theanykey:

Fruits of the forest, cinnamon, spice and vanilla on the nose. Followed by a full bodied palate with black fruits and spice. Excellent finish with structure and enticing tannin.

Cave de Rasteau:
Rasteau covers an area of 1880 hectares with 1240 devoted to the vine. It has a Mediterranean climate and the exposure of the vineyards is excellent: 70% of them are on south-facing hillsides (at 200-400 metres) swept by the Mistral; the soils are different types of clayey limestone, some of them covered with smooth stones.

It has a Mediterranean climate and the exposure of the vineyards is excellent: 70% of them are on south-facing hillsides (at 200-400 metres) swept by the Mistral; the soils are different types of clayey limestone, some of them covered with smooth stones. The diversity of soils and grape varieties explains why Rasteau wines have such complexity in their aromas and flavours and are so potent, fine and elegant. The average age of the vines is 40, though some plots are over 80 years old: grapes from the old vines are used for Rasteau Vin Doux Naturel and and Côtes du Rhône Villages. Read less

Produced by the tiny Cave de Rasteau, this Côtes du Rhône Village wine is made of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvédre. With notes of black cherry, licorice, and plum, it is very approachable, yet maintains a serious structure and great acidity.
