This French sourced wine from the Languedoc is 55% Shiraz/45% Merlot and is eggplant in hue. The nose is full of cinnamon and spice with tart berry notes.
In the mouth it is a bit astringent and awkward but the flavors of berries are nice.
This is a solid drinking wine but a little coarse. For the price point of $10 which is what 50% of the wines in the market run these days (it seems) there is better out there especially from this region.
It finishes with fruit berries if a little green. Just so, so but raise a glass.
