($50; 44% mourvedre 29% grenache 21% syrah and 6% counoise) Vivid red.

($50; 44% mourvedre 29% grenache 21% syrah and 6% counoise) Vivid red. Impressively complex bouquet melds raspberry cherry pit cassis and incense with smoky Indian spice and herbal qualities adding complexity. Rich palate-coating red and dark berry preserve flavors verge on decadent but are nicely framed by velvety tannins. A sweet floral note come up with air and carries through the strikingly long juicy and spicy finish. I'd serve this powerful deeply fruity wine with braised lamb.
