Domaine de Longue Toque 2006

This wine is not shy, weighing in at 15% abv, a blend of grenache, shiraz and mourvedre. Or should I say syrah?  Somewhere between purple and ruby in colour, the wine's aroma is all about sweet spices, meats and just generally sweet fruit - albeit not candied in that way that grenache can be.  On the palate, spices, medium plus length, herbes de provence, lowish acidity and some expected heat.  Good rustic drinking.  87 points.

Abv: 15%
Price: around $20
