"Roughly equal parts Syrah and Grenache, the estate's 2006 Costieres de Nimes smells delectably of ripe plums, cassis, and black raspberry with sweetly pungent herbs. The balance of resinous herbs, sweet spices, and black pepper; clean meatiness; and ripe black fruits on display in the mouth is superb, and the purity and clarity of flavors and silkiness of texture remarkable for a wine of its price (and considering that half of the fruit was machine-harvested). Cocoa powder and crushed stone add to the complexity of a long, soothing finish that will have you wondering how this could cost so little and why you did not buy more. I suspect one will be in no danger of holding bottles for 2-3 years."
