The Blind leading the Blind
Tonight I'm on blind tasting at its most extreme. Found a bottle lurking in a corner that has no label, capsule or name on the cork. I'm pretty sure it's from the Languedoc, as it's awash with fragrant, gentle, herb-strewn fruit, with a hint of old leather. I'd hazard a guess at it being a Grenache-heavy blend, with some peppery Carignan and spicy Syrah, but beyond that, I'm stumped. Ah well, I'll just get on and drink the stuff - it's delicious!
