This is a steal at $20. Intense, ripe nose with notes of Concord grape, damp earth, hint of mushroom and lemon. Palate not quite up to the nose; full but a bit simple. Needed some breathing time. If it was a Rhone it'd be $40. Love the Languedoc. Points for cost/benefit ratio.

Pleasant red. Full bodied, blackberries, herbaceous (on the edge of absinthe). Opens up wonderfully.

Soft, lighter acid, but plenty of plum and herbs, with a bit of sweetness, and plenty of freshness
