It's summer time, which is the appropriate time for blush wines, and on my last outing, I thought that I would pick up a classic French release and see if I found any affinity for it.

Well, at best it's middle of the road in flavor, or really simply sublime. I am tasting the sweetest hint of strawberries along with just a dab of cherry. It's not too strong, not too light, but perfect for fruits and cheese. It's the classic summer sampler.

The mix is 50% Grenache, 40% Cinsault and 10% Syrah. Not bad, although I am loving blush wines made from some headier grapes.
