External Reviews for Domaine de l'Ameillaud Côtes du Rhône Villages Cairanne
Forward, with roasted fig, blackberry jam and sweet spice notes. The round, juicy finish lets the fruit linger nicely, with a graphite hint for added definition. Drink now.
A deep garnet wine, it has aromas of ripe, purple plums, black pepper, tarragon and cocoa, followed by flavors of dark cherry, fig, blackberry, tar dust and licorice. The wine is bright, crisp and plummy with a good, zesty finish. Enjoy with grilled lamb chops or Boeuf Bourguignon. Consider decanting it, as it is young, but buy a case, because it will be even better next year!
Although the bouquet does include a rather odd nutskin component, itrsquo;s also filled with enough bold cherry scents to compensate. The slightly creamy texture shows plenty of ripe fruit character, while picking up complex spice notes on the finish.
