Heading home from ski patrol Saturday, my wife asked me to stop off and pick up something to drink with dinner. This was the first wine I saw and, being a fan of G-S-M blends, was intrigued by this similar option. I'm also a big fan of twist-off closures, another reason I picked this up. Syrah 65%, Grenache 25%, 10% old vine Carignan, this is like tasting the south of France in a glass: cassis, earth, and dark fruit aromas are followed by raspberry, earth, vanilla, and wood flavors on the palate. Relatively voluptuous mouthfeel ends in a tannic finish. At $10, this is a well-priced wine to enjoy with heavier and/or more spiced meals - we had it with sausage pizza and veggies, a great combination.
