2013 Pontificis GSM Red Blend

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.
