Delectable Featured Wine

Venturing to southern France's Languedoc-Rousillon seems a natural move for an effortless country meal. Brambly, feral Carignan, juicy Grenache and savory Syrah all shine in this sit-on-a-bench-and-watch-the-sunset kind of wine.

Medium bodied. Game, blue fruit and garrigue and leather on the nose. Fruit is a bit dull on the palette. Medium tannins.
