DSC03218The best values in French wine come from the southern part of the country, and this is really fun wine for the money. 50% Syrah, 15% Carignan, 15% Cinsault, 10% Mourvèdre, 10% Grenache. A sandalwood note weaves through red cherry and currant fruit, backed by mineral and garrigue hints on the finish. $12
