This is almost Rhone-like in its taste and makeup. A combination of Grenache, Carignan and Syrah it is dark and chewy with great fruit and the minerality that marks the wines of Languedoc. Having had a chance to visit the town of St. Chinian and go to the cooperative there I tasted several great local wines. This reminded me of that trip. Mild tannins, lots of fruit and a finish that lingers longer than one expects. Very food friendly.
