Reserve De L Aube Syrah Merlot, findingourwaynow.comReserve De L Aube Syrah Merlot was another recommendation from the wine buyer at my local Cost Plus/World Market.  It was a very nice wine for a VERY reasonable price.

La Reserve De Laude vineyards were established in 1929 by the grandfather of the current owners and was completely modernized in 1990.

Reserve De L Aube Syrah Merlot, findingourwaynow.comI think this is an interesting piece of information.  The vast Languedoc appellation where this wine is produced, covers most of the south of France, with 32,000 vineyards.  This is where produces 80% of France’s table wine is produced. What’s really cool is this wine region has been producing wine since at least 135 BC.

Reserve De L Aube Syrah Merlot,

These are some of the notes regarding this Reserve De L Aube Syrah Merlot:

“There is an onslaught of deep black fruit with crushed black apricot skins; interesting, complex, meaty crushed ripe black plums with Morrello cherry juice; and spicy underlying notes of cassis, hints of toffee and minerals.”

I could only find Reserve De L Aube Syrah Merlot at Cost Plus/World Market.  They don’t always have it, so got get a few bottles when you find or before they run out.

You have got to love the label.  It shouts French all over it.  It’s a really good table wine as the region is known for.  Think about it, you can impress your friends with this cool French table wine, especially at this inexpensive price.  It would also work really well when you need a hostess gift or to serve to your friends when entertaining.

If you give this a try, I would love to know where you found it, and of course, let me know what you think.

Time for a glass…

    This sounds like an awesome wine, Susan. I love wines with that dark fruit undertone. Adding apricot to the mix really has me wondering! I love apricots and I love plums and blackberries, but can’t quite envision the mix in a wine. Will have to see if I can find it in Manitoba.

      I do know what you’re thinking, but it works with this wine. It is a hint not a blast of apricot that seems to compliment the overall experience.  Another note, it does will when aerated.  Thanks for visiting. :-)
