Not sticky, sweet or purple.
I was surprised to see this wine on the list at Gjelina in Venice because the only thing I've ever had from Cassis is purple and sticky.
Domaine du Bagnol, Cassis, 2006 is Grenache Blanc based with a little Ugni Blanc and its very soft and easy drinking. Appley with a fresh crisp lemony finish. I'm not saying that its the most complex wine in the world, but at $40 its perfect for the end of summer when you're broke from that European vacation and too many trips to BCBG for that perfect flirty little warm weather number. You know what I'm saying ladies!
