A bright red hue. Expressive nose of very ripe fruit. On the palate it appears rich and full-bodied, with silky tannins and good length and balance
This is still dark and tight, but with a great core of racy fig, graphite and blackberry confiture notes pushed by a long, mineral- and charcoal-tinged finish. Needs brief cellaring to stretch out fully. Drink now through 2010.
The 2007 Cotes du Rhone-Villages Cairanne Pierres Blanches is another winner. Ripe raspberry, black cherry, dusty, loamy soil, pine forest needle, and seaweed wrapper characteristics are found in this dense, medium to full-bodied effort. Good acidity, ripe tannin, and a long finish suggest it should be consumed over the next 6-8 years.
This Cairanne bottle is is a solid addition to the Perrin family's operation, featuring slightly lifted aromas of crushed herbs, cracked pepper and ripe cherries. Flavors of cherries and dried spices fill the mouth, with just enough dusty tannins to provide structural integrity and modest longevity. Drink now-2017.Editor's Choice.
