First bottle last night was corked, so took it back and drinking the new one now. Much better. Nice deep colour from syrah. Cherry licorice and some violet on nose. Some peat, and minerality on palate. Juicy berry finish, nice tannin, good weight to it but easy to drink. Great value satisfying wine. Midi seems to have that great value, similar varietals to S. Rhone. I would love to try the B.F. Viognier from this producer.
From the Minervois, this red is a blend of syrah and mourvedre. Slightyly tart blackberry fruit, backed up by plenty of herbs and spices and subtle notes of dried meat. Not particularly deep or complex, but true to its southern France origins and very satisfying. Purchased at a discounted $11.95 and represents a stellar value at that price. Tasted Nov 2011.
