If you are searching for a great mid-week wine bargain, look no further than Domaine L’Hortus “Le Loup Dans La Bergerie” Vin de Pays. For around $9 a bottle, this blend of 40% Syrah, 30% Merlot, and 30% Grenache is quite a steal. The grapes are grown organically and the wine is aged in stainless steel tanks. It is definitely a mid-week winner in our household!
This blend opens with rich aromas of red fruit and anise. The palate is smooth and flavorful with soft tastes of black cherry, raspberry, black tea, and spice. Fresh, balanced, and very easy to sip! (13% alcohol)
