89pointsChâteau des Karantes 2005 La Clape Red (Coteaux du Languedoc)

Ripe red raspberry notes, accented by cocoa, a chalky minerality and a hint of orange zest liven up the medium weight. With ample acidity and strong tannins, this wine will only improve with some time; you can tell that it's holding back and there's so much more that hasn't fully developed. Try it now or hold for 5–6 years. Lauren Buzzeo
