Soft barnyard mingles with dried thyme and lavender, adding complexity to the juicy plum, cherry and wild raspberry flavors. Creamy but firm, with gripping tannins and a cocoa-dusted finish. With 50% Syrah, 40% Grenache and 10% Carignan, this is an intense Minervois that can stand up to beef stew or braised short ribs.
