Better than the previous years. Much more complex and dry.

A very aromatic wine with a whiff of berries and a supple, full roundness in the mouth; deep tannins and a graceful finish.

Essence of boysenberry and blueberry, with a good balance to the primary fruit and spice flavors. The crisp finish features zesty cherry notes. Drink now through 2014.

This red delivers currant, red plum and cherry flavors, along with plenty of licorice notes. The firm, lip-smacking finish features plenty of spicy currant elements. Drink now through 2013.

Plum and berry aromas and flavors dominate this medium-bodied red. Spicy notes and a clean finish, with peppery elements. Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Carignane. Drink now.

I have never visited Chateau de Paraza (a prominent landmark in the eponymous, tiny, canal-side village at the eastern extreme of its appellation) and it had been several years since I tasted one of their wines, but their 2007 Minervois Cuvée Speciale demonstrates that this well-known estate can still turn out a head-turning value. Very ripe blackberry fruit sweetly caresses the palate, with cinnamon, cardamom, juniper, black pepper, and cherry pit bitterness adding interest. For all of its richness (in itself amazing for the price) this finishes with lip-smacking juiciness and an invigorating impression akin to chomping down on the seeds of the blackberries. Enjoy it over the next 2-3 years.
