Grapes for this wine were sourced from cen-tury-old vines. The 2007 bottling is a blend of 69 percent Grenache and 31 percent Syrah. The medium-bodied wine exhibits aromas of violets, red and dark fruits, black pepper notes and a hint of garrigue, southern France's distinct terroir characteristic. It has a pleasing minerality and even tannins. Decant and drink with wild game, sausage, stews or roasts.
