More about this wine from Languedoc-Roussillon, France
Situated on the Mediterranean coast of southern France, the LanguedocRoussillon region is known for its blends - like this Minervois! - rather than single-varietal wines. The Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre in this wine were each fermented separately and then blended before being bottled.

It's a classically funky Minervois and it's a straight killer, with a groovy barnyard vibe that makes you want to go take a long walk and breath the clean air of the countryside. Tastes like a macerated bing cherry juice box you'd sip on while walking around row after row of horse stables at the Kentucky Derby. Sheep wool with wet crunchy leaves and dirt, clad with nuances of leather bound books and the inside of an old Cuban cigar box.
