A Patric Lesec wine: showing age with some bricking and mature, stewed and baked cherry fruit that is pleasant but with some alcohol volatility.
Palate--Cherries with pepper on a a slightly hot base but interesting none-the-less with an olive finish and a little more pepper. This was a closeout wine at 25% off making it about $8. I grabbed it because Beaumes De Venise was one of the very first wines I had some 30+ years ago when I began this adventure. It was a good grab and worthy of raising a glass!
