2011 Côte-Rôtie, Terres Sombres, Domaine Yves Cuilleron

Glass-staining purple. Sexy, spice-accented aromas of dark fruit preserves, cola and incense. Sappy and smooth in texture, offering gently sweet blueberry and cherry-vanilla flavors and a hint of black tea. Supple tannins come up late and give shape to a long, gently sweet finish. Quite suave for this cuvee, which is typically the most brooding of Cuilleron's Cote-Roties.
