A powerhouse of a 90+ bottle. Not for the timid.

For sheer force of fruit and a delivery system of nitro-fueled tannin, nothing matches a Bandol. Creme de cassis, mocha, and sandalwood flavors are beautiful, and temper the argressiveness of this wine a bit. A finish of cigarettes, garrique and grilled meats turn this back towards a rough and ready masculinity. Mourvedre, blended with Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah.
