A nose of a well crafted, organic fruit popsicle.

First sip tells me this is going to be another enjoyable wine from this producer. Slate plates, topped with a fruit compote that has been melding for a couple of days. Lip smacking acidity that shows this med touched fruit off as it is. Just the slightest hint of iodine, yet that could be from my dental implant uncovering..
Southern France has so much to offer, with well made wine, that showcase the terroir.

A blend of 75% Grenache, 20% Syrah & 5% Carignan with no oak aging. Pleasant big red fruit aromas with complementing spice. On the palate blackberry and cherry flavors, almost jammy with pepper spice and balanced acidity. Round tannins, medium+ length ending with a mineral finish. Nice value, a little more southern geography this would cost more $. Tasting Sample.

Good QPR. A well-balanced 80% Grenache with a derp, dark color, elegant with earth tones. Recommended.

Hardcore berry, nicely acidic, medium bodied - opens up well with a long, strong finish. Versatile and a bit quixotic.

Really pleasant wine. Welcomed intermission in between lighter reds as we moved on into Bordeaux. Red fruits, long finish, juicy in a good way!

Clean red fruit without much else. Light, stony, earth, and a mild finish. Relatively full, otherwise, and a nice bottle for cheese and berries.

I love Grenache and this blend has ripe fruit with some black pepper. Very well balanced. Nice finish too!
