Bandol is a wonderful region of Southern Provence in France where they make red and rosé wines that are dominated by the variety Mourvedre, an up and coming varietal in Washington. Bandol is a wonderful place to visit. You can also search out their wines at most local wine shops. As you smell this wine you will note the complex aromas of black pepper spice, cherry, and dried herbs. On the palate more complex fruit together with balanced acidity and structure promise a wine of some longevity. Pair it with marinated and grilled meats from chicken to pork and beef; add some spice!
Mourvedre (61%) Grenache (25%) Cinsault (8%) Syrah (6%)
