($14; a blend of syrah, mourvedre and tannat) Dark red. Musky aromas of licorice, tree bark, Indian spices and roasted herbs. Sweet, round and supple, with redcurrant and truffle flavors framed by pepper and spice notes that carry through to the back. This very gently priced and rather unusual blend finishes with soft tannins and a suggestion of milk chocolate. Use this as you would a good Cotes du Rhone.
