Bila-Haut Côtes du Roussillon Villages 2008, France - $10

This wine by M. Chapoutier was rated 90 points by Wine Spectator and was #75 on their Top 100 of 2009. I purchased it for $10/bottle at Costco. This wine is a blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Carignan.

Aroma - red fruit, a little hot, a little musty
Taste - red fruit, a little musty, tobacco finish, moderate tannins

This wine is a good buy for the price, and I would purchase it again. Need to be sure to share it with those who like Old World wines (a little stinky/musty).
