Mas de Sainte Croix Tendresse d'un Climat Côtes du Rhone

$ 12.99 $ 14.99

The "Tendresse" is equal parts Grenache and Syrah with notes of raspberry coulis, ripe cherries and aromas of alder wood. The wine picks up density and weight as it opens, showing peppery and Asian spices and sweeter riper fruit. This is a polished Côtes-du-Rhône with a beautiful rhythm that will continue to evolve in your glass. Right now, it is perfect for all grilled fare, whether it be savory spiced lamb chops or herb crusted pork chops.
