Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Carignan
Tasting note: Tradition is a blend of the typical terroirs and grape varieties we can find in Cairanne. With a dark, purplish red, the strong color sets the tone. Delicate nose with intense black fruit aromas such as blackberry but also notes of licorice. The palate is rich, aromatic and the tannins are well-built. Generous and supple, with a lingering finish where the ripe black fruit aromas blend with the spicy notes, brought by the Syrah.
Food pairing: A universal wine that will satisfy your guests. It will greatly pair with a vegetable casserole, a “Provencal” beef stew and other southern meals seasoned with thyme or rosemary.
