La Sauvageonne Coteaux du Languedoc les Ruffes 2008

Member Review by Wine Girl:

It surprised all of us. It had an earthy nose. For me, it was filled with chocolate, earth, and black currant. We all tried this one and loved it.

The 2007 Coteaux du Languedoc Les Ruffles mdash; as usual, a blend of Syrah, Grenache, Carigan, and Cinsault mdash; smells of wood smoke, soy, and dried cherries. Sappy and bright on the palate, and with considerable richness, its persistent smokiness and salinity is augmented by a dusty aura of crushed stone. There is a faint trace of heat in the finish but otherwise a convincing persistence in what must count as an excellent value for enjoying over the next couple of years.

This rich, refined red is very pure-tasting, showing mineral, smoke, dried cherry and sandalwood flavors, with powerful undercurrents of currant and French roast. The long finish echoes spice and roasted meat. Best from 2009 through 2014.
