" The Michel Gassier CostiÃ¨res de Nimes Nostre Pais Red 2014 is a lush red wine that brims with layers of fruit flavor. A deep red-violet in the glass, the nose shows intriguing aromas of black fruit, cherry, and hot stones. These mouthwatering notes are followed up by rich flavors on the palate. Dense and velvety, the mouth shows flavors of cacao, dried herbs, and pencil lead that mingle with fresh and juicy fruits. Accents of minerality and fine tannins round out this lovely red wine."
This has a noticeably toasty frame around a modest core of plum and cherry fruit flavors. The finish gives way to a cocoa powder feel. A bit shy on stuffing all around though. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 3,750 cases made.
