2014 Hérault Rouge "Le Fruit Défendu" (Magellan, Domaine)

Domaine Magellan, Rouge "Le Fruit Défendu", Languedoc, France, 2014

{sustainable} 90% Cinsault, 10% Grenache

JUICY PLUM & CHERRY; SOFT, FRAGRANT SMOKINESS

Another Cinsault-based anomaly from the Languedoc, the red version of "The Forbidden Fruit" is gearing up to be our summertime staple, guzzled in vast quantities at parties and barbecues throughout the season. It's so approachable, so beautifully textured, and the fruit-to-spice ratio is just right. A fantastic wine at a frankly astounding price. A Wine Authorities exclusive!

Serving Suggestion: "One-hander" burgers and brats off the grill, eaten while standing around said grill perhaps with spatula or tongs in hand. Tiki torches a plus.
