A pleasant, unassuming wine akin to Grenache, but with less zing and grip. Only 12.1 percent, it seems a little flat. An interesting nose with slightly sweaty, gamy notes. It's good enough on its own, but you can see why this is mostly a blending grape in southern France, where it comes from. Bright strawberry and watermelon flavors make it very round.
