Mas de Sainte Croix Tendresse d'un Climat 2016
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 more peppery and Asian spices and sweeter riper fruit. This is a polished Cotes du Rhone with a beautiful rhythm that will continue to evolve in your glass.
