My most recent delivery from Laithwaite’s had this recent vintage of Cabalie, another wine which receives rave reviews on Laithwaites website. It’s another wine which Laithwaites have sold for years now. It’s good wine.
Tasting notes: Its appearance is deep purple in colour. Dark fruit, plum notes on the nose. Medium length. Medium body. A blend of grapes which works. The result is interesting. Some intensity on the palate, with a sweet hint and some spicey notes. Some complexity.
Region of Origin – Roussillon, close to the border with Spain.
Wine Colour – red
Price – part of a case deal, about £10.99

Grape – Blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault.

Verdict – Good wine for the price
Food Pairings: This would work well with rich red meat dishes and cheese.
