Default TN: Mas de Mortiès 1998

With a dinner of grilled ribeye steaks:

1998 Mas de Mortiès Pic St. Loup
c: dark garnet with no browning
n: berries and grapes, deeply fruity, developing some minerality later
p: medium-full body, still some rough tannins, blueberries, chocolate,
minerals, long finish

I was served this wine blind, and guessed a Languedoc from 2000-'01.
This wine is still quite youthful. The remaining tannins worked quite
well with the steaks and the fruitiness was never cloying, owing to just
enough acidity. Overall, a nice bottle, in the more fruit-bomb vein.

That has been one of my favourite wines when I went to
Montpellier two years ago: my friends, who are not that much
interested in wine, all remained pleasantly surprised.
The suggestion of this producer came from old Mike

Cask aged would suit me better... ;-)
