2016 BENEVOLENT NEGLECT Counoise 75cl (Mendocino, California, USA)
Style - Spicy
Grapes - Counoise
Tasting - Sloes and damsons with a wild, chewy, leafy edge to the palate. There's some stonking great ripeness that conceals the solid tannins a bit. Fresh despite the all that richness mind you.
FYI: TUnusual to find counoise as a single grape wine, it's usually blended with Grenache and Syrah into Chateauneuf du Pape and similar style Rhone Valley red wines.
