2007 Éric Texier Côtes du Rhône Villages Vaison La Romaine
Another year in the cellar did wonders for this wine. It still has a core of dark berry fruit, but there's now a bit of an herbal edge and a swirling mid-palate complexity with earthy tones mixing with the fruit and herbs. Not a lot of structure, so it goes down way too easily!
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.
