French Dessert Wine

Domaine Des Coteaux Des Travers
Rasteau, Vin Doux Naturel
Recolate 2000
Shane’s Notes

How could we pass up a port-style Grenache? It is brownish in color with aromas of cinnamon and creamy vanilla. The palate is maple syrupy with a caramelly finish. It is more vinous than we expected and has a hot finish. It is light-bodied, and we thought it would be sweeter and more flavorful. It was okay, but we will not be buying a second bottle.
