Perrin et Fils Chateauneuf-du-Pape Les Sinards 2007
70% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre.
An intense red color, very dark. A nose of black fruits, kirsch, lavender, roasted lamb, garrigue. Full-bodied, very ripe palate with a nive texture and soft tannins.
This will go perfectly with a roasted lamb with thyme.
The Wine Advocate
The Perrin et Fils 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Sinards completes a very impressive line-up. Dense ruby, with licorice, sweet cherry, and lavender notes, this full-bodied, admirably concentrated wine can be drunk now or over the next 10-12 years.
This delivers the ripe, plum, boysenberry and blueberry fruit profile of the vintage, with good underlying sweet toast and spice notes. Slightly raisiny on the finish, but there's enough fresh anise and rounded tannins to offset that. Drink now through 2011.
