91pointsChâteau des Karantes 2008 La Clape Rouge Red (Coteaux du Languedoc)

This La Clape red, made from 50% Grenache, 40% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre, is dark and herbal, with strong aromas of black berries and plum guts supporting the garrigue notes of lavender, thyme and bay leaf. More dark fruit unfolds in the mouth alongside sweet cigar spice and notes of bittersweet chocolate, almost like a spiced Black Forest cake. Big and hedonistic but silky and balanced; drink now–2014.
