Domaine les Aphillanthes 1921 Rasteau 2009, Cote du Rhone Villages

$37 from Nicks Wine Merchants. Intense ruby colour with a purplish rim. A voluptous aromatic profile with notes of black raspberry, cherry liquor, grilled steak with herbs. A dry, full-bodied wine with a sexy smooth velvet texture. Mouth-filling rich flavours of raspberry and black cherry, there is vibrant raspy acidity, buffered by plush youthful tannins. Have this with grilled grade 9+ wagyu steak. Drink now – 2019. 91/100.
