This layered blend is exactly the type of wine for which we started the Red Cellar Trio club. Mas de Daumas Gassac Red and White blends are built to age and make for magical tasting experiences 20 to 30 years after release. This 2013 vintage is a blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 5% Tannat, 5% Petit Verdot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 3% Nebbiolo, 2% Dolcetto, 2% Pinot Noir and 2% Malbec. Yes, that's right, this wine has all those different varietals which were vinified separately and then aged together in 10-20% new French oak barrels for 18 months before bottling. It adds up to a gorgeous, thought provoking and complex wine that is almost too hard to describe, but we'll give it a try...wonderfully ripe but not overly fruity flavors of plum, cassis and sweet black cherry underscored by that intoxicating perfume of Daumas garrigue. Medium-bodied, supple and silky with seamlessly integrated tannins, this wine is fresh, vibrant and alive with an endearing character that only comes from Mas de Daumas Gassac.
