Domaines Paul Mas, Vignes de Nicole, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pays d’Oc IGP, Languedoc, 2019
Deep garnet and bright purple rim. Floral and fragrant nose: plenty of blackberry, cassis and violets with some lipstick waxiness, cherry cola, milk chocolate, blue plum, woody spice. Medium full palate with pleasant tea like tannin giving ample support to a swathe of dark fruits and hints of woody ginger spice. Simply structured and fruit focused yet offers comfortable drinking and fine value.
Rating: 17.25/20 (90/100)
