2004 Abbaye de Tholomies

The 2004 Abbaye de Tholomies is from the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France and honestly, was another wine that swayed me to try it because of it’s marketing on the back of the bottle. In this case, it was the fact that the winery used to be run my Monks “back in the day” which was somewhere in the realm of 1000 years ago. While, marketing is marketing and suckers like me fall for it.

In this case, it worked. The wine is garnet in color with dark fruit aromas dominated by cassis, plum and spices. Soft texture and a long finish. The wine is a blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre.

Another solid B wine that was picked up at Garnet on the Upper East Side for $16.
