2010 Escaravailles, Les Sablieres, Cotes du Rhone

Tasted blind, served a little too cold in a Riedel Vinum Riesling glass.

Appearance: Clear with medium ruby colour and nice legs.

Nose: Clean with medium intensity and developing notes of pebber, black cherries and black schist.

Palate: dry with medium (+) acidity, medium tannins, medium (+) alkohol. Medium body, Medium (+) flavour intensity. Notes of cherry, plum, leather, licorice, blackcurrant, sweet pebber and a hint of yoghurt.

Nice balance between fruit and tannins, leading to a nice medium (+) finish. Very much my style of wine.

Good quality, can drink now but has potential for ageing. My guess was a Gigondas 2009.
Not all bad, but a nice wine that was a pleasure to drink through the evening. Tasting a lot wines blind at the moment, so more notes will follow.
