Lots to enjoy with this under $20 wine.
Main grape variety is Grenache with Syrah and Carignan supporting. This wine has lots of sweet, ripe fruit with aromas of "garrige" (think herbs de provence). It has a moderate length with slight heat to it. I savoured this wine with steak and a French film! Oui!

Deep purple, inky colour. Black licorice, dark plum, cassis, white pepper and mature black fruit. A hot wine with medium tannins, with a long smooth finish. Solid 89.

I'm with Szabo on this one. This is a rather basic new world style wine. I also find it mentholated with a medical cherry (cough syrup) core on the palate. It is smooth with little grip. The herbal notes add some character in the mid palate but otherwise there is nothing to get excited about here.
