Chateau des Karantes la Clape Coteaux du Languedoc 2009

Member Review by jtryka:

The wine itself is a lovely deep ruby in the glass, and the nose is a wonderful combination of intriguing aromas, from some lovely toasted oak, faint floral notes, anise, cocoa powder and a bit of earth. The taste is delightfully subdued at first, which is surprising given how fruit forward so many GSM blends can be. Instead, this one opens with some lovely notes of ripe berries and plum, which transitions to some baking spice and dark chocolate midpalate. The tannins are nicely structured, supporting a long, smooth, dry finish that makes you immediately crave another sip.
