Wine of the Week - Le Cirque Red
Come taste it all four locations on Saturday July 19 - from 11am-4pm

2011 Le Cirque Le Cirque Red...$13.99
40% Grenache + 25% Carignan + 20% Syrah + 15% Mourvedre
First of its kind to incorporate all four grape varieties that seriously come into question for this cuvee – in order of prominence here: Grenache, Carignan, Syrah and Mourvedre – the 2011 Le Cirque red delivers a slightly reduced aromatic display suggesting red and black raspberries with a smoky, sweaty, sage-scented overtone. The reduction here happily translates into positive tension and invigoration on a sappy palate, tart-edged in its berry-concentration and pungently herb-tinged, leading to a mouthwateringly salt-tinged, gripping and stimulating if faintly rustic finish. I suspect – though it is only a suspicion (and who is likely to test this?) – that this excellent value will please through at least 2015.
Rated 89/100 The Wine Advocate
