Domaine Grier Crusade 2007 93 Points

Looking at the back label might give an impression of a powerful red wine, yet here the alcohol is smartly integrated delivering a captivating and seamless experience, this is super yummy, with just the perfect tannin grip easing into secondary development of the wine, this is drinking so well now, persistent lenght, classy feel, yet have impressive stamina for the cellar, did I say very well price too?
