Carignan Poud0u
2013
France
750ml
13.5% ABV
$8.96 (Astor Wines, New York (on sale for $6.96))

There was a multitude of this wine on display at Astor Wines in the East Village of New York.
I was looking for Rye Whiskey. Kentucky Rye Whiskey.
But I looked at this wine bottle. And I looked at the price. Well under ten bucks. Even withe the exchange rate to Canadian. And the sale price.
Of course I took this wine. I also bought some whiskey – but that is another tale.
That same evening I shared this bottle with some very good friends. Very nice wine. If I was to find a fault it would be that it was a little weak in flavour. It was very nicely balanced but lacked a kick.
Which is not a bad thing I suppose.
This is a fantastic wine at the full price and a steal at the discounted price.
