A 2016 Syrah-Grenache (60%/40%) but with some Carignan in there. This is from the Languedoc-Rousillon region of Southern France. This is aged in 10% old French barrels and 90% concrete tanks. Juicy mouth-watering ripe cherry, strawberry, blackberry. Medium aromas of lavender, anise, slate, graphite, grass. The alcohol is at 14.5% but well-integrated with the acidity that produces a pleasant tartness. The tannins are medium to high producing a medium length finish. Very enjoyable wine and at this price a super value.
