Another Sunday, another Red Blend! This one is from the Pays D'Oc in Southern France. Langudoc-Roussillon to be specific - the land of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre. That is what comprises this wine - 45% G, 40% S and 15 % M.
Found this blend called Pontificis down at my local Trader Joe's with a sign in front of the bin saying that this one was a "Crew Favorite", meaning that the work crew at the store has blessed this one. Hey, it was only $6.99, so what could I loose?
Wow - this blend is really nice. Complex - with wonderful fruit notes and earthy spice to complement them. Plum, Raspbery, Coffee, Oak, Vanilla - wonderful - I'll be going back for more.
