Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Syrah based blend from the Languedoc is a very good value. It opens with a black olive and black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium acidity. The mouthfeel is round and balanced. The flavor profile is a black tea and tar blend with notes of black olive. I also detected hints of black cherry and mild blueberry in the background. The finish is dry, and its mild tannins fade away nicely. This midweek wine is very food friendly and versatile. I would pair it with beef tacos or a steak burrito. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Smooth and sensual, this red blend reveals intense notes of red fruits. The plush fruit and spice flavors of Syrah are deliciously balanced by the sweetness of old vine Grenache and the vivacity of Mourvèdre. The addition of Carignan brings everything together to create this generous and structured wine.
