2014 NOTRE DAME DE PALLIERES RASTEAU
Formerly a Côtes du Rhône-Villages, Rasteau became an appellation in 2009. The domaine has 13 hectare of old vines on plots of clay soils, covered with heat retaining stones—galets. The 2014 Notre Dames de Pallières Rasteau is a blend of 75% Grenache, 15% Mourvèdre, and 10% Cinsault, aged in French oak barrels of 3 to 5 years. It shows a purple color, with an heady aroma of blackberry, white pepper, and cocoa. On the palate, ripe fruit and spicy flavors abound. The wine has a long finish with lasting tannins.
