Brambly berry, cherry and raspberry, spices, black pepper ... all are present in this authentic French country wine. There are also some aromas of Garrigue (Rosemary, thyme and lavender) giving a minty, herbal notes, that are quite refreshing as well. Food Pairing: The wine is a perfect match with a nice rosemary marinated roasted lamb.
The two best buys for my taste include the 2014 Corbieres Col Des Vents, a blend of 50% Carignan, 35% Grenache and 15% Syrah, showing loads of berry-like fruit, Provençal herbs, pepper and a lush, soft, juicy texture to go along with its deep ruby color and solid finish. Drink it over the next 1-2 years.
Juicy blackberry and dark cherry flavors mark this plump red lined with ample sweet spice and marked by light smoke and grilled herb notes on the short finish.
