Château-Maris Continuite de Nature Carignan 2010
Great grapes make great wines and at Chateau Maris we're lucky enough to have just what it takes to grow ripe, healthy grapes with plenty of flavor. This wine is seductive stuff with irresistible aromas of perfumed hedgerow fruits, spice and herb. There's a lovely breadth of flavor on the palate and, depending on your mood, you can either enjoy the fresh, fruit-forward nature of the wine or, take more time to revel in its more subtle side which reveals a savory edge with hints of mocha too. An extremely good food wine, we like to drink it with wholesome, flavorful but unfussy fare.
Wine SpectatorDense and ripe, with plenty of roasted notes to the dark plum and dried blackberry flavors, featuring accents of tarragon and thyme. Hoisin sauce and plum pudding details appear on the finish. Drink now. 400 cases made.
