Dark brooding mourvedre and peppery syrah join forces in this powerful, fragrant offering from one of my favorite producers from the Languedoc. Pair with a juicy red T-bone, lamb roast, bison flank steak.

Lovely ripe dark cherry aromas on the nose. Firm tannins, full bodied, Mediterrenean sun-soaked dark fruit and moderate oaking well supported by a bright acidity. Another solid offering from this great producer.
