2012 Bastide Miraflors Vieilles Vignes Côtes Catalanes

miraflorsThis old vine Syrah(70%) Grenache(30%) blend from Southern France is a collaboration between Eric Solomon and Jean-Marc Lafage and was recommended by my wine rep buddy and it over-delivers for the price. Showing off both brooding black cherry and  pretty strawberry fruit, with lots of meat,  licorice, dried mint, and forest floor. Medium tannins and medium+ acidity make it a good pairing with almost any meat, and good length to the finish. There isn’t much of this vintage left and I may drink it all unless you hurry. Buy this wine!
