This eminently drinkable blend of Syrah, Carignan, and Grenache Noir has a sultry, sweet nose of forest berries, currants, and cacao nibs with a subtle hint of fresh coffee. The mildly spicy palate is concentrated and silky but still fresh. The immediate freshness gives way to flavors of cooked raspberry, strawberries, and red plum with a note of freshly tanned leather. Smooth, juicy tannins offer smokiness and a lovely mouthfeel that lingers in the finish.
The pleasant roundness of Petit Mod'Amour Rouge pairs well with beef and veal ragu, and vegetable stews.
