Les Aphillanthes Cuvee 3 Cepages 2009, Cotes du Rhone Villages

$27 from Nicks Wine Merchants.

The Cuvee 3 Cepages is an equal blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvdre.

Clear intense crimson ruby colour. Clean, youthful aromas of strawberry perfume, fresh green herbs, spanish plums and a hint of fine ground pepper. A dry, full-bodied wine of silky texture, 14.5% alc, with an even slate of dry tannins. A very drinkable wine with good honest fruit flavours. Drink now – 2015. 89/100.
