2014 Château Paul Mas Clos des Mûres, Languedoc, France

The wines produced in the Languedoc region of France are some of the most beautiful and underrated wines of France. The wines are terrific values and huge palate pleasers. This wine is a smooth, smoky and seductive blend of 85% Syrah, 10% Grenache and 5% Mouvedre that brings a lot of complexity and pleasure to the dinner table.

Floral notes, anise and tar round out the desirable aromatic profile with flavors of dark berries, plum and chocolate. Smoke and plum flavors linger on the slightly chewy tannic finish.  Roasted Saddle of Rabbit Galette or Cassoulet will pair well with this full bodied wine.

Very Good | $20 | 14.5% ABV
