Chateau Sainte Eulalie 2007 Minervois La Liviniere

The Chateau Sainte Eulalie wine is a blend of 55% Syrah, 20% Grenache, and 25% Carignan with a dark red color producing aromas that were woody, smoky, toasty, Sneezy, Bashful, and Doc (ah, strike the last three) and ripe red fruits on the nose was quite pleasing.

I’m finding French wines are more enjoyable as I get older (no jokes about aging – the older it gets the better it is, etc, etc, etc) and I’m not sure why but I like it. This wine had a medium bodied structure to it with flavors of black cherry, red cherry and plum prevailing with nuances of smoke and pepper. I enjoyed this with spaghetti and marinara sauce. Priced at $14.99.
