2006 Domaine Treloar Tahi, Côtes du Roussillon
This Roussillon-based domaine is making some increasingly impressive wines. This sleek, oak-aged blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre is surprisingly elegant for such a big wine. Complex, vigorous and balanced with subtle spice and aromatic red fruits. Long and very minerally, with the structure to age for another three to five years.
