Joseph Phelps Le Mistral 2008
The 2008 Le Mistral is dark and savory with black fruit, dried herbs and white pepper. With a deep red color and intense character, it is spicy with complex layers of dark currant, licorice, red berry and a long, lingering finish.
Wine EnthusiastA dry, peppery Rhône-style blend, not to be confused with Joseph Phelps' old wine of the same name. The mouthfeel is rugged but rich, housing cherry, blackberry, currant and bacon flavors.
