It may sound contradictory, but this wine is both rustic and elegant. Graceful in its simplicity without being simplistic.

------

This lovely blend of 90% Carignan and 10% Syrah will reward you with juniper berry, red plums, earthiness, a touch of purple flowers and an even subtler hint of peanut shells on the nose (yep, we really do smell it). Don’t be fooled, however; this wine has some serious substance with light to medium tannins and well balanced acidity.

Food Ideas: baked acorn squash with wild rice, walnuts, and mushrooms, steak with an herb butter, pork or tempeh molé, cassoulet (or any hearty bean stew)
