Domaine Les Grands Bois 2010 Cuvee Les Trois Soeurs (France)
Tonight it's a Rhone wine made from equal parts Grenache, Syrah and Carignan, very purple in colour with a hint of a red tinge around the outside rim ... I mention this because it looks very pretty splashing into the glass. A touch of violets on the nose along with white pepper, plum and black cherry ... very appealing and alluring. The plum and black cherry continue onto the palate and that white pepper shows up as well, but more on the finish than on the mid-palate ... the back of the bottle says it's "easy to drink" and I am apt to agree. Supple and very tasty.
