Mas Lavail Carignan Terre d'Ardoise 2007

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

If you have purchased red wines from southern France, from Priorat or Montsant in Spain, or perhaps a Zinfandel field blend from California, you might already be familiar with the Carignane grape and not even know it. The 2007 Mas Lavail Vieilles Vignes Carignane is made from 80-plus year-old vines from the town of Maury. Located between the mountains of the Pyrenandeacute;es and Corbiandegrave;res, the vines thrive in the dry, sunny climate. The sun can be tasted in the bright red and purple fruit that coats the palate like crushed velvet. While the mid-palate is plush and rather creamy, the black schist soil found in this region makes itself known with a distinct impression of stony minerals and exotic spices behind all that fruit. Spicy, fruit-forward and without any hard edges, this wine is a must-try for Zinfandel and Candocirc;tes du Rhandocirc;ne lovers.

Offers lots of spice and rose petal on the nose, with plenty of ripe plum, berry and cherry flavors. Mouthfilling fruitiness, with notes of chicory and Asian spice on the finish. Drink now through 2012.
