Mas Carlot Cuvee Tradition 2011
While this red Costieres de Nimes, in the far south of the Rhone region, is not quite up to the level of that vineyard's "Enfants Terribles", it is nevertheless a very nice, smooth drinking wine with plum and dark berry elements and a nicely acidic finish; and it doesn't cost nearly as much, $6.99, which establishes it as a bargain. A couple of marginal notes: at least at my usual outlet, this rang up at no less than six dollars more, so. as is always the case with PSLB, you have to keep track of your charges. And, (I suppose this was inevitable), when I googled "Mas Carlot" on the internet, I was directed to various used car lots.
