A full-bodied, robust French red wine from the southern wine region of the country, offering aromas of wild black fruit and toasty oak. Lots of grip on the palate. You can't beat the price for this is an AC-designated wine. Decant 1 hour. Pair with meat lovers pizza.

Reviews and Ratings

The 2012 vintage of this robust French red wine is a blend of 60% Syrah, 20% Grenache and 20% Mourvèdre grapes. The vines grow in stony hillsides and sun-dappled slopes of the Mediterranean sea where they ripen with great complexity. This winemaker Guilhem Durand has been producing wine for 25 years. Pair with game dishes and mushroom risotto. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
