Cinsault typically produces fruity and fresh wines meant to be drunk young when bottled on its own. This wine is no exception, with complex, bright red berry fruits like cherry, ripe strawberry, and red currant dominate, complemented by black pepper, violets, and mulling spices. This wine is meant for popping when the sun is at its fullest!
The wine itself is versatile & can work with standard southern French and Mediterranean fair: black olives, sheep’s milk cheese, ratatouille, and yes, even pizza. However, its spiciness can stand up to heartier fare like grilled sausage or garlic-heavy dishes.
