Wine Snob: Clos du Calvaire

The other night with the Downton Abbey picnic, we tried a bottle of Clos du Calvaire 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape. It was a lovely wine. We decanted it for about two hours before we tasted it. The wine had a medium body. It had notes of cherry, raspberry, earth, wood, nuts, and a hint of sourness.

I would definitely try it again. It is lovely and it melded well with the bread and cheese spread.
