Natalie's Score: 90/100
A terrific southern French red wine: this is the 2013 vintage of the Côtes du Roussillon Villages which is a robust blend of 40% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 15% equal parts of Mourvèdre and Carignan. The wine is vinified in concrete tanks then aged in large oak barrels, of which a small portion is new oak. Lots of generous aromas of dark fruit and smoke. Pair with grilled meats.
Food pairings: rustic sausage stew, grilled flat-iron steak, grilled lamb chops.

|Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Lots of inviting dark fruit on the nose with violet and earth and mint, carrying through to the palate - a blend of 40% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and 15% each of Carnignan and Mourvedre....well integrated tannins, well done. Highly recommend.
|Jacky Blisson rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Intriguing stemmy fruit, cassis and a fresh, eucalyptus notes on the nose. Very fresh and moderately firm; medium in body, marginally ripe black fruit flavours and ripe tannins.
|The 2013 Côtes du Roussillon Villages is a blend of 40% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 15% each of Mourvèdre and some Carignan. Lots of plum, fresh berry fruit, strawberries, garrigues herbs and lavender on this medium-bodied wine. Easy to drink and enjoy. - Community Wine Reviews|
