Domaine Sainte-Anne Cotes du Rhone Villages Saint Gervais, 2000

This is my favorite of the Domaine Sainte Anne wines. It has a relatively high percentage of Mourvedre in the blend and ages beautifully.

Deep cherry red. Takes awhile to open but worth the wait. Slowly violets emerge, then dark cherries. Finally small red berries. Spicy as Mourvedre should be. Also deep and laid back. All of that on the palate...and more. Cherry compote, very rich. More spice. Perfect balance of ripe fruit and fresh acidity. Long, elegant finish. I love it.
