Vintages Wine Panel: One of Saint-Chinian’s strongest producers, Château du Prieuré des Mourgues takes Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre and barrel ages them separately for 12 months. The final blend accentuates the fruit of the Syrah, the pretty cedar tones of the Grenache, the backbone of the Mourvèdre, plus the vanilla from the oak to create this finely made, food-friendly wine. It has all the generous fruit that was expected from the Midi in the 2007 vintage. My note: Simple and lip-smacking tasty! This full-bodied red offers notes of black raspberries and cherries with some pepper at the back. Judicious use of oak wraps the package nicely. Decant 2 hours.

Syrah Grenache Mourvèdre food pairings: grilled leg of lamb with garlic and rosemary.
