Heaps of flavour here; the fruit is wonderful, nice tannins and a terrific buy overall. Definitely worth keeping a few of these around if you're fan of this rustic old world flavour profile.

Blackberries with spices and smokiness on the nose. It has plenty of fruit, smooth tannin, is medium-bodied, and is very smooth.

Blend of Syrah and Mourvèdre. Medium+ aroma intensity with blackberry, blackcherry and hints of violet. On the palate, it's medium-full bodied with round tannins that are nicely integrated. Pleasing aroma replays, along with black pepper and red cherry notes. Acids are well-balanced. Finish is long and smooth. Tasted Aug/2014.

Ripe, fruity Minervois with dark berry fruit, hints of black olives and black pepper. Quite approachable and appealing, a no nonsense red for current consumption. An easy wine to like. Quite fairly priced at $15. Tasted Sept 2014.
