2007 Hermitage Marc Sorrel
France / Rhone Valley
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
Outstanding with rich red meat dishes, game or even hard cheese at the end of a meal.
Saturated red. Subtly complex aromas of red fruits, violet, minerals and smoky spices. Intensely flavored and detailed, with youthful raspberry and cherry flavors complemented by cinnamon and candied flowers. There's a pinot-like quality to this wine that's very appealing. Finishes sweet and long, with lingering flavors of tangy redcurrant, bitter chocolate and flowers.
