The wine is a brooding dark color in the glass, and the nose is a pleasant combination of blackberry, cocoa powder and a hint of coffee. The taste is somewhat less fruity than I would have expected given the nose, but it was quite nice, with initial flavors of tart cherry and black currant, which gave way to some chalky earth and green herbs midpalate. The finish was just lovely, with some dark chocolate notes over some evolving tannins that made way for a long, smooth, dry finish.

This 2008 - 50/50 Blend of Syrah and Carignan from Languedoc-Roussillon, France is very good. Deep ruby color with a tight rim variation. Fruit notes of blackberries, prune and black currents with a hint of pepper and slight minerality. It has a long finish on the palette with mid acidity. This wine has not peaked and will mature nicely over time (2016-2018). Best served chilled to 62 degrees, double decanted and served with a roasted pork loin.
