Saturated ruby. Graphite, cherry, dark chocolate and vanilla on the nose, with a sexy floral quality coming up with air. On the palate, the wine’s sweet red and dark fruit flavors are at once juicy, precise and seamless. The cherry and floral notes echo on the very sweet finish. This is delicious now. (Sept/Oct 2010)

Each week I like to choose a new wine to introduce to our fans. These wines vary by region, by varietal and even by price. I don’t think cost and value are necessarily related. So I like to focus on wines I have experienced on my travels and I think our fans will enjoy trying. salut!

Costieres de Nimes, France

90 Points — Wine Advocate

The 2007 Trassegum is a blend of 50% Syrah, 25% Carignan, and 25% Mourvedre (all from vines around 80 years old), aged in both tank and barrel for two years. Dense ruby/purple with floral, almost Cote Rotie-like notes of exotic Asian spices intermixed with honeysuckle, black currant, raspberry, and cherry, this is an attractive, delicious, medium-bodied wine with plenty of elegance and complexity. It should drink well for 2-3 years.
