Wine tasting note: 1989 Mas de Daumas Gassac red

1989 Mas de Daumas Gassac red

14th Aug 1998 GBP10 France Table Red

Deep ruby/red gradually paling to brick red at rim - still plenty of life.
Rich, developed nose of figs and stewed black fruits, vanilla and oak, iron, mushrooms.
Full bodied with intense, stewed black fruits, lively,grapey acidity and firm, dry tannins. Quite rustic with lots of oak, excellent balance and a long, complex finish.
Very good now but still quite hard - could do with a few more years.
