Tasting Notes Nearly moderately dense dark purple red. The nose is very youthful, indeed still primary in its expression of black cherry and blackberry fruit, with a warm lift. The palate is very attractive and well-integrated, clean and fresh. Medium plus in weight, the wine is still young and will benefit from short aging in bottle. The finish shows vibrant acidity along with soft tannins. This is an excellent regional expressing the black fruit personality of the 2013 Southern Rhône reds, and it will offer more by early 2016. A blend based on Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah which is competitively positioned below $14.99 retail. - RB
