Les Pins Domaine Carpy Fitou (2005)

Les Pins Fitou 2005We will have Les Pins Domaine Carpy Fitou 2005, a blend of Grenache, Syrah, Carignon, and Mourvedre tonight with steak and rice. This delicious red is brawny yet delectable. It is full bodied with a fruity nose, firm and grippy tannins, and a bodacious finish.

Prior to opening this bottle, we started our cocktail hour with a martini. Yesterday I stopped at a wine and liquor store in Ann Arbor and decided to get some new gin and vermouth — something different than our normal brand. So, our martini tonight was made with Quintessential London Dry Gin and Noilly Prat French Dry Vermouth. It was a lovely martini. I would describe it as delicate but herbal. The gin has a pure and clean taste; the vermouth is infused with herbs. The two combined produced an equisite martini.
