Agly Brothers is a traditional and generous red blend comprised of Carignan, Shiraz and
Grenache. This wine is typically regional with ripe dark fruit aromas complemented by plums, earth and sweet, native dried-herbs. The palate is elegant and dry, lingering with a candied berry finish.
"A full-bodied, muscular red that's filled with plenty of kirschlike flavors and plenty of rich smoke and spice. The ripe finish features dark chocolate, fig and ink notes. A good choice for roasted meats. Drink now through 2013. 50 cases imported."
"The Agly Brothers 2006 Cotes du Roussillon smells brashly of ripe blackberries, toasted nuts, wood smoke, and leather. A soy-like saline savor reinforces the carnal and leathery side of the wine on palate, while deep black fruits tinged with pepper and herbs segue into quite evident, slightly grainy tannins. With the sort of energetic finish that characterizes so many of Chapoutier's Roussillon wines, this promises to be worth following for at least 4-6 years, although it must be pointed out that the project;s originators have their sights set on twice that many.
