Medium garnet color, with pronounced aromas of strawberry, vanilla, cedar, red cherry, and eucalyptus. Medium acidity and body, with flavors of blueberry, strawberry, black cherry, black pepper, cedar, and sandalwood. A medium + finish.

Bright and fruity, medium tannins, a lovely wine by itself or with spicy foods and pastas.

Salty, savory and earthy at first but tapers off to a full black cherry/plum finish. Really complex.

Pronounced aromas of red fruit, red cherry, strawberry, raspberry mixed in with notes of vanilla and some liquorice and herbs, though the finish is a bit short despite good acidity

Great little Southern Rhone blend of Grenache and Syrah -strawberry, pepper and eucalyptus. Domaine Lafond a good producer

Very balanced flavor, pairing well with fruit, cheese and red meats. Would definitely purchase this wine again.

This is good but it doesn't taste French at all. Might as well be a California cab.
