Floral nose thanks to the viognier, juicy red berries thanks to the mourvedre, hefty weight on the palate due to the syrah. A wonderfully unique and altogether great blend from one of the most underrated and exciting regions, given the price.

Excellent go to red for typical red wine red meat and strong flavored foods. Very tannic and strong taste.

Over time developed some really awesome aromatics. Nothing over the top but such good value.

A total crowd pleaser. Very easy to drink, good fruit and some subtle earth and tobacco notes.

I like this vintage more than the previous one. There is more power and structure here, even if it is only from the oak. The viognier adds a bit of floral notes but remains masculine.

Has the Mourvèdre stink that I just can't get used to. Nice fruit undertones. Jammy, but good jammy
