This robust French red wine from the heart of the Rhone Valley offers aromas of black fruit, cedar, smoke and dried herbs. It's complex, layered and deep with a long finish. This full-bodied red wine is a blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre and 10% Syrah matured in stainless steel and large barrels. Pair with hearty meat dishes and casseroles.

Food pairings: beef.
