(WA89-90 points) Tasted assembled and awaiting bottling, the Agly Brothers 2009 Cotes du Roussillon smells of peat and black fruits, but with a detached aura of toasted oak in the guise of lanolin, coconut, and caramel, which accompany cooked boysenberry and cassis on a rather obviously tannin-starched palate. A low-toned finish lingers impressively, though without much brightness. In the context of an illustrious series, the present installment is a bit disappointing. While it ought to serve well over the next several years, I would not be tempted to try to attempt waiting-out the resolution of the tannins. - David Schildknecht

Layered and complex, the aromatics shout South of France with dried herbs and kirsch leading the way to blackberry and cassis and touch of leather. While it comes across as powerful and rich, there is a fine balance of acidity and a great sense of minerality that is classic of the schist soils that make the Roussillon so special. With 6 years of age the tannins have integrated wonderfully allowing flavors of juicy black fruits, star anise and dried herbs to take center stage followed by a long, broad spicy finish. Ready to go now, this easily has another 5-7 years of enjoyment.

Deep purple core with little rim variation. This is still rather youthful given 8 years of age, with a vibrant bouquet that shows a nice interplay of berry preserves, hot stone and hints of dried sage and thyme. The... Deep purple core with little rim variation. This is still rather youthful given 8 years of age, with a vibrant bouquet that shows a nice interplay of berry preserves, hot stone and hints of dried sage and thyme. The palate echoes the nose initially, with a luscious profile and silky, integrated tannins. A solid spine aof cidity takes hold mid palate and gives this wine a pleasantly long finish. This would be an excellent choice with dry-rubbed, BBQ’d baby back ribs. Drink now through 2020+.
