TASTING NOTE: Lavau's 2017 Tavel is a blend of 50% Grenache, 45% Cinsault and 5% Syrah. Raspberries and subtle hints of dried spices mark the nose, while the flavors are richer and more assertive than in the 2016. It's medium to full-bodied, with ample weight and concentration on the palate and a long, berry-driven finish. Drink Date: 2018-2019.
