A. O. P. Minervois Benjamin Darnault 2011

Purchased from Naked Wines, $14.99A.O.P Minervous Benjamin Darnault


Aaron: I really enjoyed this bottle.  While not a huge fan of the full, oaky nose with allspice and basil, the flavor was overflowing with berries.  A vanilla and dark chocolate aftertaste melt into the smooth finish, making this one of the best bottles I’ve had from Naked wines.  92 points

Teri: This bottle tasted young with characteristics of bright cherry on the finish and aftertaste. It was a standard red at first taste but got noticeably better with some aeration. I enjoyed the subtle hints of cinnamon and spice. Overall, not too intense but enough to satisfy an experienced wine drinker. 88 points
