Wine review: chateau de la gardine 2007

Chateau de la Gardine 2007 is red wine that is rather expensive, but worth it! 5/5.

“Perhaps the best buy is their 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Tradition, which is a blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre, and the rest Syrah and Muscardin. Their most traditional wine, it sees some aging in small oak barrels but virtually no new oak. Dense purple and soft, with luscious black currant and black cherry fruit, licorice, pepper, and garrigue, this wine displays some subtle smoke in a full-bodied, attractive, velvety style, with sweet tannin and plenty of glycerin and richness. This is a beauty that can be drunk now or cellared for 10-15 years.”

“Defending America, one cubicle at a time.”
