2012 Le Grand Noir Black Sheep

Produced from vines up to 60 years old, this blend of 60% Grenache, 35% Shiraz, and 5% Mourvedre showcases smooth yet complex flavors of blackberries with dark spice, cocoa and black pepper overtones. This wine comes from the Minervois region of France, which is on the southern end of the country and enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate. Take a bottle home and pair it with hearty beef dishes, grilled meats and game fare.
