Matassa - Ace of Spades Les Myrs
Blend of Mouvedre and Carignan. Mineral driven with tons of “horse blanket” notes up front, with a strong cherry cola and chocolate raspberry back. Slightly effervescent, though I expect that to blow off in a few hours. Good tanin structure that has me somewhat confident this won’t get too mousey over night - finishing this in one go would be a nasty hangover. Delicious stuff though. Tom Lubbe so rarely doesn’t hit his mark.
