2009 Bouké ‘Bouquet’ Red Dessert Wine, North Fork of Long Island, N.Y.

This blend of 95% Syrah and 5% Pinot Noir has a candied, menthol nose with noticeable alcohol. Milk chocolate, some pepper and extracted syrupy red fruits emerge, while black pepper dominates the mouth, joined by raspberry and cherry. A nice treat with German Pfeffernusse cookies or dark chocolate-covered dried blueberries. A beautifully balanced dessert wine.
MSRP: $39.99/375-ml. (July 2011)
Wine Lines rating: 91
