WTN: Three With The Boys...(short/boring)

by TomHill » Sun Feb 10, 2013 11:33 pm

Our BacchusBadBoys got together Thurs night and some we tried were:
1. Dom.Rostaing LesLezandes VdP des CollinesRhodeiniennes (12.5%) 2007: Med.color; strong smokey/roasted/NR light violets/Syrah/blueberry lovely classic NR/Cote-Rotie/espresso complex nose; fairly tart bit tannic/hard attractive NR/espresso/roasted/smokey/roasted meats light violets/blackberry/Syrah flavor; med.long tart bit tannic/hard strong roasted/espresso/NR/smokey light floral/violets/blueberry/Syrah slight mineral/graphite finish; a lovely/complex classic NR Syrah but probably won't outlive the tannins; one of the best Rhodeiniennes Syrahs I've had.
