Natalie's Score: 90/100

A towering southern French red wine blend of 70% Syrah and 30% Grenache grapes. The Grenache component of the wine was aged for 1 year in 80% concrete tanks while the Syrah was matured in 500-litre demi-muids (large barrels). Purple plums and blueberry pie on the nose and palate of this robust, smooth, juicy French red wine. Pair with hamburgers and relish with salsa on the side.

Syrah Grenache food pairings: gourmet hamburgers, meat tacos, roast chicken.

Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

I must confess that the first word in my tasting notes for this red wine is "YUM!" The next written words are as follows: inky; luscious red and black fruit;coffee; hint of chocolate; blackcurrant leaf; polishing tannins; medium(+) acidity; long juicy finish. Full body. All I would need as a reader to purchase this wine. I might add Good Value at the end for this French wine at $20. Buy a case for the upcoming holiday season - yes, I went there.
