2013 Domaine Boudau, Clot de Pila, Les Cargolines, Cotes du Roussillon – $13
Imported by Zwine Gallery Imports. This wine is a blend of 50% Syrah and 50% Grenache. Alcohol 14%. Tasted over two nights this wine develops aromas of strawberry candy and Kirsch. There are similar flavors in the mouth that are bound with good, youthful structure that makes the wine a bit chewy. There is an inky, slightly mineral finish with some persistent tannins on the gums. This should peak in two years. **(*) Now – 2020.
