Something deep, rich and warming required tonight; an accompaniment to lightly spiced tortilla things that Rob plans to rustle up later tonight. Loose change extracted from various pockets produced the grand sum of £5.90 - hence the purchase of this Southern Rhone red.

Wine Tasting Note: Enclave des Papes Rouge, 2004, Coteaux de Tricastin, Rhône, France.
Plucked from a shelf at Oddbins for £5.79.
An unoaked blend of Grenache (65%), Syrah (30%) and Carignan (5%); the nose is chocolatey and curranty, the palate ripe and bursting with raspberry and spice flavours. Peppery. It may be sometime before the tortillas... a slither of unpasteurised cheese (Beaufout 'springy, buttery and golden with caramel undertones and a full, lasting flavour') mellowed out those rustic tannins and emphasised the raspberry flavours very nicely. Alcohol at 14%.
Scribblings Rating - 90/100
