It's only wine but I like it

Checks all the boxes for a fine CdR Villages: Ripe red fruit (strawberries come to mind), infused with herbs and black pepper and a bit of warming alcohol on the finish. Delicious. Tasted Sep 2019.

A 2015 red blend of 80% Grenache d 20% Syrah from the Cotes du Rhone-Villages, Southern France. The Cotes du Rhone is a 200 km region that includes 171 villages along the Rhone river from Vienne to Avignon. Of the 171 villages, only 18 can put Cotes du Rhone-Villages and their village name on the label. This exclusive club has stricter regulations for quality and grape variety composition. This wine comes from one of these villages: Plan de Dieu. Named in the Middle Ages, as it was said that anyone who ventured into this huge forest of scrubland, peopled by bandits, would do well to put their trust in God. The wine has aromas of cherry, plum, lavender, thyme, leather, licorice, intense black pepper. Perfect example of the region. High acidity and tannin would do well with food.
