The robust and warming reds from the south of France are one of winter's most pleasing diversions. Versatile, crowd pleasing and gentle on the wallet. Red and black fruits, a hint of spice and mineral-y dry finish.  Who doesn't like a Grenache / Syrah based blend?  (If you happen to be part of a Saturday evening crew - these are a "TD.")
