Les Quatre Tours Prestige 2005

  • Area: France, Provence
  • Grape: 40% Grenache, 40% Cab Sauv, 20% Syrah
  • Alcohol: 14%
  • Rating: Black 89 Dilettante 89
Description: Aromas of spice, cloves, leather, oak, eucalyptus and cherry waft out of the glass. Oh so cherry on the attack and bold in sassy in the mouth. Integrated flavors of currents, spice, vanilla, black pepper and red fruits. Old world style with a new world lift. The 05 is brighter and sassier than the 04. Darker elements of prunes and dried fruits appear with some air. Decanting not required.

Price: $17
