2015 3 Graces Noir
This blend of Mourvedre, Grenache, and Syrah is a lovely burnished garnet. The aromas of black cherries, crème brulee and a hint of vanilla subtly develop as the wine opens. It has a wonderful weight in the glass and great acidity with soft tannins. It benefits from aeration to bring out the complex flavors of dark fruit, black pepper, and anise. The acidity creates a long lovely finish. Pair with rich meats like short ribs, barbeque, and lamb (be sure to use the Southern French herb bouquets of lavender, rosemary, and thyme).
