This red blend (60 percent Syrah, 30 percent Grenache, 10 percent Mourvèdre) hails from the Languedoc in southern France. The name garrigue is a reference to the low growing bush plants typical of the region that are peppered with wild herbs including rosemary and thyme. When used as a wine descriptor, it’s channeling the aromas you get walking through the brush, crushing those herbs. This wine offers red fruit aromas backed by that garrigue. The ripe cherry and berry fruit flavors are balanced by crisp, food friendly acidity, while an intriguing bit of meat and smoke come through on the smooth finish. An exceptional value.
