2019 Mistral Rouge

This is the first time the Rouge has been majority Counoise and it shows. The
nose is perhaps a little more muted than past editions of this wine, but the palate
bursts with a mouthful of ripe red summer berries. A subtle nose of red violet and
lilac, and a sweet herbal note like marjoram or coriander belies what’s to come on
the palate. Take a sip and enjoy a mouthful of ripe red summer berries- raspberry
and strawberry and wineberries, oh my! That herbal component tags along too,
the whole experience leaves a strawberry rhubarb pie sensation on the finish.
A beguiling beauty, if only we made more!
