2000 Domaine de Cabasse Côtes du Rhône Villages Séguret Cuvée Garnacho

This was a bottle that I bought for a grenache tasting some months back, and I bough an extra to have on-hand just in case we liked it.
Some nice plum, herb, and slate on the nose, with the slightest hints of brett. One the palate, this wine still seems a little tannic, with hints of brett. The fruit is a bit subdued, but hints of plum and black cherry shine through, with other hints of dark fruits and spice. More slate and mineral come through on the palate, but this is a good thing, and is a nice representative of a Côtes du Rhône with some age on it. Nice lingering finish make this wine a pleasure to drink. Drink now. 90 points!
