Colombelle Red Blend Gascony France 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Enthusiast's Best Buy 200760% Tannat, 20% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon The Vin de Pays de Côtes de Gascogne are regional wines produced in the Gers department. The appellation, created in 1982, was developed after most of the Armagnac vineyards were converted into table wine vineyards. With its oceanic climate tempered by the Landes forests to the West, the Pyrenees to the South and just the right mix of sunshine, rain and coolness, the Gers provides ideal conditions to get the best from its vineyards. Our wines also draw their distinctive flavors from the great wealth of Gascony's soil.Plaimont Winery was founded in 1979 when the wineries of Plaisance, Aignan and Saint Mont joined forces to create a single entity.On the nose, a lovely bouquet of red fruit with soft spicy notes. The palate boasts a round and fruity wine, easy to appreciate. The finish displays freshness with notes of pepper and licorice.An everyday, easy to drink wine.

Dark cherry on the nose, slightly smoky red fruit at the beginning witha slightly dry finish. Not bad since I only paid $5.99 for the bottle!
