Château de Nages Red Rhone Blend Costières-de-Nîmes 2007

Member Review by dynowine:

Advisory ... on a not-well-enough-decanted bottle ... this is a typical CdR red with the balance toward the acid (needs decanting). Pleasant nose of mildly sweet fig, vanilla, and black fruit, with somewhat intense flavor of ripe dark berries, iron (metal), and some hint of earth. Lingering finish of ripe not sweet blackberry, iron, and leather. Reasonable balance, medium body, stronger acid, medium tannin.

I come from a long line of winemakers so my degree in Agricultural Engineering naturally destined me to continuing in the family’s footsteps. But the thirst for discovery, the desire for independence and freedom, and the need for challenges, led me to try my luck in the U.S. Excited by the positive work attitude and having found my soul mate, I stayed in the U.S. for ten years. That experience had a profound impact on me. I learned to see the opportunity instead of the problem, the potential instead of the limitations, and that in your daily work it is better to have dreams. My return to the vineyards was inevitable. My wife, Cristina, and I had longingly prepared for it. Not to go back to the cocoon of family comfort, but rather to create our own path making truly unique wines. Read less

Decanted. 1st half was terrific. 2nd half not as much. A pleasant and easy drinking wine.
