The 2006 Chateau Maris La Touge Syrah is a beautiful purple color. It is a rich and elegant wine with blackberry flavors and cassis and blueberry on the nose. Full bodied with good extraction and well balanced acidity, the tannins are silky smooth. Blueberry flavors lead to a long finish with subtle herbes de Provence and refreshing mocha and vanilla notes.
High-toned mint and herbal essences and buddleia floral perfume mingle with scents of ripe black currant in the nose of the Maris 2006 Syrah La Touge, leading to a lush, sweetly-ripe palate, with notes of wet stone and pencil lead offering interest in the finish. This has a wonderfully silken feel, and despite its suggestion of sweetness and its (by estate standards low) 14.5% alcohol, possesses an almost “cool” fresh fruit character, with an invigoratingly tart edge.
