Tasting Notes

An organically farmed, naturally made Grenache-Cabernet-Carignan blend from Aubais, a small medieval village south of Nîmes. Winemaker Mark Haynes may be many things: entrepreneur, winemaker, tango dancer; but there is one thing that he is not--conventional. Mark is a spirited man who came to winemaking late in life when he realized that so many producers in the Gard region were turning their backs on winemaking and farming. The region is in the south of France about 30 minutes from Nîmes. It was his summer home in his childhood and he always had a fondness for it. Looking for a new challenge in his life, he fled to the village of Aubais and began organic farming when he purchased his first vineyards in 2002. The "Liverna" is his workhorse red with lovely currant and pipe tobacco notes. The Grenache adds an element of juicy red fruit that rounds out the flavors of the wine. This makes for great everyday drinking.

    Aubai Mema is a fascinating undertaking-- marrying old world techniques and truly ancient surroundings (settlements at Aubai pre-date the Roman Empire), with organic, new world farming practices and innovations to the regional blending styles. A unique combination of Cabernet Sauvignon (65%) Grenache (25%) and Carignane (10%), the wine unfolds quite a bit over the first few hours opened. It starts with very vibrant fleshy plum and a youthful energy that eventually matures into deeper aromatics and leathery tannin. The three grapes are vinified separately-- the Grenache and Carignan are de-stemmed but the Cabernet is left whole-cluster. I really enjoyed this wine, and plan to forget a few bottles for another year or so (though they might not make it before I drink them).
