Full and pleasing, with miles of red fruit and a very spicy middle. "Dionysos" is worthy of the highest praise and devotion, a red blend that will inspire wild revelry twice over—once for its persistent, juicy flavor and twice for its amazing value. With a spicy red Burgundy soul but the muscle and punch of the rich, sunny south of France, "Dionysos" delivers on all fronts. A touch of earth, a hint of licorice, a full bushel of fresh garrigue and energy from bow to stern.
Ordinarily, I would not review unfinished wines for a values issue, but when I tasted it, the 2007 Corbieres Dionysis was priced and ready for bottling (of which there are normally several, unfiltered runs), and it would be a shame not to get word out about its quality. Black cherry, cardamom, and toasted pralines on the nose lead to a rich yet effusively juicy palate with satisfying notes of beef stock and chocolate mingling with ripe black cherry. A faint tannic grit in no way detracts from one's enjoyment nor from this wine's inevitable versatility at table.
