This American palette-friendly red blend is half Syrah half Grenache and has a surprisingly smooth finish. While this is definitely a fuller body wine, the Grenache mellows out the Syrah nicely and leaves you with soft and elegant tannins on the finish. Definitely a great everyday wine at this price point!

About the winery 

Domaine Rière Cadène is a family winery nestled between the Mediterranean Sea and the Pyrenees mountains, in a region called Roussillon. Since 1904, from father to son, they have been using the same traditional skills and perpetuate their precious understanding of the wine. They are committed to producing high quality wines that reflect their great terroir, in a sustainable way (ongoing conversion to organic farming). Here many years ago, a family of winegrowers began cultivating two exceptionally distinctive terroirs, with a focus on freshness, elegance, and attention to detail for generations to come.
