I get at least a case of this wine every year to use as an everyday red. The problem is, it's better than an "everyday red." Grown near the Mediterranean at the southern tip of France near Spain,this red has a deep purple color and rich flavors of dark plum, kirsch liqueur, licorice, and dried herbs. Rich enough for rustic fare but harmonious and balanced in the mouth and finish. Crazy good bargain. - HK 2017-01-13
