Perrin & Fils les Christins 2003
75% Grenhache + 25% Syrah. Pairs with meat, pasta with tomato sauce and vegeterian risotos. WS=91 A gorgeous nose of dark fruit confiture and spice cake flavors is followed by a powerful palate of dark fruit, smoke, tar and minerals. Richly layered and densely structured, but with an elegant side as well. Best from 2006 through 2009.
