l’attrape-coeur vin de pays 2003

l'attrape-coeurlL’attrape coeur (loosely, “capture the heart”) is a distinctly French wine, with a bit of earthiness and a charmingly whimsical label by illustrator and poster artist Jean-Pierre Desclozeaux.

A 60-40 blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, l’attrape-coeur 2003 begins with a nose of dusty blackberry, smoke and spice and follows with mouthfilling, dark fruit flavors which evolve as the wine opens.

Nicely structured with a dry, persistent finish, this wine is fine for sipping but really comes into its own with a meal. Priced at under $15, it delivers a lot of satisfaction for the money.
