Chateau Puech-Haut 2009 Prestige Red Wine, $19.99, 92 points, was Rosewood grading garnet red in color.
The aroma was a beautiful array of cooking spices and freshly baked bread, with just a touch of sweet red cherry.
This Rhône red wine was more round, more balanced than the last two French wines I reviewed; having near perfect acidity, smooth tannin, good tasting cherry, plum, boysenberry, and hints of tobacco flavors, more lush too, but slightly more expensive (Well worth it), It clearly impressed me.
This genre of French wine is sometimes considered to be the "common-man's" French wine that I had been looking for to recommend to NH wine lovers.
The finish was long with spice, licorice, and a hint of menthol.
The varietals were Grenache and Syrah with 15% alcohol.
