Rich and smooth, with los of fruit. I can taste the Rhone like syrah. Good value.

A good value wine. Strong red fruit flavours are complimented well by a nice application of oak. Not the best wine tasted during the evening, but a solid choice nonetheless.

More rustic and earthy than their consistent value table wine, the cuvee doesn't provide too much more by way of depth and polish that I was hoping for. However, still a good every day wine.

A good value, savoury, bright red wine from southern France. Mostly tart red fruit, with a touch of blackberry. lots of savoury aromas: anise, sage, cedar leaves, leather, baking spices, tobacco, and hints of green bell pepper, forest floor, and cocoa. Nice repeat on the palate with a strong mineral note emerging, but also, unfortunately, some unripe strawberry character which detracts a bit from the overall flavour. Very food-friendly, with medium to high tannins and acidity. Medium length, with raspberry, bitter cocoa, black pepper, and licorice persisting.
