(Great growing region + winemaker who cares)/(pretty bottle+ pretty color)= a very good glass of wine (or two...or three... and THAT is the extent of my math for the day).

The predominant taste in this wine is a dried cassis. It is fruity, but has a minerality that grounds it. Some tannins that add a longer finish and a nice depth of flavor. I think that this is predominantly a Syrah, with some Grenache to lighten it. I can't find the percentages but my guess in 70/30. Look at me guessing varietals... hah! I could easily have this wine with chicken or grilled pork chops - something not too spicy or overpowering.
