A blend of syrah, grenache, and cinsault with just a soupçon of mourvèdre, it makes for a bright and wonderfully gamey wine. Very youthful, with toasty notes of cherry, birch, sassafras, and pomegranate.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair this lively red with an array of fresh and savory vegetable dishes alongside a carpaccio of tuna or beef. A rare steak in any number of variations (tri-tip, hanger, New York, filet) would also pair beautifully, as would more exotic fare like chicken tikka masala, Tandoori lamb chops or Salade Lyonnaise.
