Juicy dark berries, vanilla and oak. Succulent and delicious. Pair with pork tenderloin. Tasted Nov. 27, 2016.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Lovely aromas of dark berry fruit and oak. Smooth on the palate, berry and plums, soft tannin and nice acidity. Try this great value wine with pork or a cheese platter.
Gorgeous boysenberry and spice notes on the nose of this full-bodied French red wine. The vines are planted in limestone soils overlooking the Mediterranean Cap Insula in the heart of the Languedoc region of southern France. Pair with grilled steak and pan-fried mushrooms.
