Domaine Lafage Arqueta Collioure 2015, France

Dark ruby in color with a reddish rim.

Nice fruity nose with black currants, blackberries, cherries, vanilla, wood, spices, medicine, cigar box, light earth, leather, smoke and chocolates.

Full bodied and elegant with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with plums, sour cherries, strawberries, raspberries light oak, spices, licorice, earth, black tea, peppercorn, leather, tobacco leaf and wet rocks.

Medium plus in finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a nice red blend from France. Not fully balanced, but very complex. Will be better in a year or two. The high alcohol is not noticeable, which I liked.

Needs 90 minutes to open up properly. A Good food wine.

15% alcohol by volume.

87 Points. $35.

It’s a beautiful snowy day here, but Andrew has it let the snow keep him from his appointed rounds! Come say hi tonight @discoverywinesny from 5-7pm!

Last week's tasting event with @svzotti was a blast! Who's ready for this Friday's Meet the Winemaker event where Sandra and her pal, Sean Larkin will be pouring some of his greatest hits?

It's been an absolute joy drinking this wine....

...but, alas, this is my last bottle of this mineral-rich gem, so I hope @divisionwineco are making more. All the spiced blueberry, wild strawberry, and pomegranate fruits sewn with notes of Lapsang, herb brisket, black pepper, and violets are almost gone. This is a fabulous wine! It was fun while it lasted.
