L’Ostal Cazes Estibals 2009

From the Languedoc, we gave this a shot as we liked their Rose. The embossed tactile gold, almost Patrick Scottesque, label appealed too.

So too this wine. Dark plum skin colour, slight whiff of oak, rich cherry fruit. slightly strong @ 14.5%. nice structure and mouth.

Estibals apparently refers to the Minervois plots where most of the grapes are plucked.

A layered blend of 60% Syrah, 20% Grenache, 20% Carignan.

Quality presentation and content but pricey at 16.99 from O’Briens.
