2007 Bourgeois "Cuvee Stephi"

Enjoyed the inexpensive little 2007 Bourgeois Family Cuvee Stephi Grenache Syrah, Roussillon tonight. Very decent cranberry color. Nose of cranberry, raspberry, lavender and maybe even a hint of meat. Tart cranberry/raspberry fruit on the palate is supported by sweet herbs. The purity of the Grenache fruit really shines through as this wine is not aged in any oak. Syrah adds body and a bit of peppery spice on the finish. Would make a nice partner for grilled sausages, ratatouille or other hearty Mediterranean fare.
