Maquis Lien 2004 Red Wine

Price: around $11

Color: Deep red

Nose: Oak, blackberries, leather and cedar

Taste: Medium body density with a little spice on the tip of your tongue. I can discern the Syrah fruit but the other varietals hold it back the right amount. Nice and complex. Not a boring wine.

Summary: Its a blend alright. 50% Syrah, 23% Carmenere, 12% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot, and 7% Malbec. A good wine to pair against a meaty meal.

You can pick it up at World Market
