Domauine Alary (Daniel & Denis) Cairanne Le Font d'Estevenas, 2007

Image result for alary font stevenasCairanne is my favorite Cotes du Rhone Villages, and Domaine Alary (along with L'Oratoire Saint Martin and Rabasse Charavin) is one of my favorite estates.

La Font d'Estevenas is a blend of roughly half Grenache and half Syrah; the Syrah is particularly dominant at this moment. Dark ruby, some sediment. Beautiful fruity, floral smells. Black fruit and dark spice on palate. Some tannin showing, but at this age, it is unlikely to resolve. Still a very enjoyable wine.
