Paul Mas Carignan, Languedoc France

Southern France, and the greater Languedoc-Rousillon wine producing region, has some great experimentation in making wines from so many different varieties of grapes. Carignan is one of my favorite from this region for full-flavor dry red wines. Surprisingly light body, dry. Nose of raspberry, buttered popcorn, cocoa. On the palate sour cherry, coffee, and graphite.
