Domaine de La Garenne Bandol Rouge 2007, Provence, France - $27

I purchased this AOC Bandol Rouge at Spec's for $27/bottle. It is a blend of 75% Mourvèdre, 20% Grenache, and 5% Carignan.

Aroma - red and black fruit, hot, dark cocoa
Taste - red and black fruit, dark cocoa, strong tannins, long finish, dry

This wine is great but I can really smell the alcohol! When I checked the bottle, it was listed at 15% - that's really high! But I don't taste the alcohol, so would still recommend the wine even though it wouldn't be my first choice.
