Strawberry with Hints of Spice

2003 Domaine Paul Autard
Cotes du Rhone
Shane’s Notes

The aromas include spices, cloves and sweet, bright, red fruit. The color is a translucent cherry, and we immediately noticed that this wine resembles a Rosé. The first sip confirmed the visual evidence: it tastes like a Rosé with strawberry and tart cherry dominating the palate. The palate is juicy and the lingering finish displays hints of spice. We suspect that Cinsault is the dominant varietal. We enjoyed this one.
