The Other Wines in the House - Buy AGAIN

BUY AGAIN is what Paul said to me after we opened and tasted this Domaine Guintrandy Cotes du Rhone Villages Visan le Deves.  I tasted this during the spring tasting at Arlington Wine & Liquors and purchased this bottle for $16.19.  It is a blend  Grenache and Syrah.

The color of the wine is inky which can be attributed to the Syrah. The nose had hints of menthol and mint that gave way to  black currant.

The palate was filled with dakt fruit, black current, prune, and finishing off with liquorice. I am not a big fan of liquorice, but in wine I seem to be okay with the flavor.

This is a very fruit forward wine.  It's a drink today wine, as I don't feel it will benefit from any time aging in the wine cellar.
