Today we are trying the 2010 Mas de Guiot Grenache/Syrah from the Rhone. Not for the big fruit forward Cali wine style people, this is made in a more restained and elegant style. On the nose it has some scorched earth, raspberry and mineral aromas with flavors of cherry, licorice and iron. Pairs well with food and great for the money!
