Chateau Saint Julian Rouge 2011
Dark aromas of game, herbs and an earthy aroma that also features some dark fruit and a little mint and cola. It tastes delicious with the dark fruit taking center stage in the mouth but still balanced by some nice earthy streaks. Hints of dried herbs from the nose carry over and you'll also find some oaky licorice notes. All of this is wrapped up in a very smooth, almost creamy texture. It ends dry with a mineral tinged finish featuring lingering cola and licorice notes under more of that delicious dark fruit. Fantastic!
