Les Vignes De Bila-Haut 2008 Cotes du Roussillon Villages

It was a good weekend, I got to hang out with my lady in Capitola, where we enjoyed the beautiful weather, beaches, and cuisine of the area. Oh, and let me not forget, drank some great wine at Cava Wine Bar. If you get a chance definitely check it out, Cava has some great, off the beaten path varietals and producers. One wine that seemed very interesting to me on their menu was the Les Vignes De Bila-Haut 2008 Cotes du Roussillon Villages (Grenache, Syrah, Carignan). Although we left too early for me to get a taste, I found a bottle at a nearby wine shop and decided to pick it up. So on the nose, I picked up Black-cherry/Rasberry, sweet Plum, hints of pepper, and stony minerality. The complexities of the nose at the price of 12.00 dollars definitely compelled me to want a taste. With that being said, my tasting notes consist of rasberry, red plum, black cherry, incorporating pomegranate and briar on the finish. Also, some things I enjoyed within this wine's juice was good structured tannins, decent minerality and a adequate length in finish. My advice is buy it, try it, and allow your mouth to take it for a ride. Oh, and leave a comment.
