This is a good but not quite great wine. A little more weight would have put it over the top but it does benefit from some air. Very nice fruit with Grenache dominant and a fair amount of structure to match. Drink with beef or full flavored foods. Good value; worth buying. I like the complexity on it.

Delicious Roussillon red. Brimming with dark berry fruit, pepper and local herbs, with hints of black olives. Approachable, with a lingering finish. Simply a great value for current drinking. Tasted June 2013.

This red wine is a blend of unspecified amounts of Syrah, Grenache and Carignan. Plum and cork with hints of purple fruit aromas from the cork. Medium-high intensity aromas of barnyard, black cherry, herbs and pepper from the glass. Medium+ bodied with racy acids. Palate has spice, anise, black cherry and black currants. Good structure with tannins that are nicely integrated. Finish is long and a touch warm. Chill slightly and drink now. Enjoyable! Tasted Nov/2013. Score: 88+ pts
