Domaine La Vitalis Cairanne Cotes-du-Rhone-Villages 2011 $27-$30

Cairanne is a specific appellation within Cotes-du-Rhone. This is a very good, slightly rustic red, with savoury dried-herb and licorice aromas, and a rich taste with superripe blackberry-jam notes and assertive tannins. There’s a touch of alcohol heat. A gutsy red for hearty food. Now to 2021. 14.9 per cent alcohol. 90/100 – Huon’s Wine 360

Food: Portuguese beef espetada

Stockist: Red Bottle; Porter’s Liquor Chatswood
