Violet color. Attractive, smoky aromas and flavors of chocolate nut bar, berry pie, and sandalwood incense with a silky, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium body and an effortless, breezy nutskin, grape pulp and pips, and apple finish. A crisp, refreshing red blend for everyday enjoyment.

Vin de Pays are for better or worse, country wines - simple, everyday offerings that offer charm and local character for not a lot of money. The wines are usually named for their grape types. Besides Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah, other reds include Pinot Noir as well as blended reds. These are medium-bodied wines with moderate tannins, good acidity and a lighter herbal character. They are fine values, priced in the $10-$12 range in most cases. Drink fresh and pair with stews, lighter poultry and bistro cuisine.
