Gérard Bertrand 2008 Le Viala Red (Minervois La Liviniere)

Like a moody teenager in a bottle, this is a dark and brooding wine with heady, dark fruit notes of black cherry, boysenberry and plum all graced with accents of minerality and garrigue herbs. The mouth, big and firm, shows assertive tannins and a tight structure that promise longevity. Black licorice, fresh cigar tobacco and roasted espresso grinds all dance on the endless finish. Drinkable now, but should hold nicely through 2016. Lauren Buzzeo
