La Patience Merlot
This family estate, established in 1930, takes its name from a wild, aromatic Mediterranean herb called “La Patience” that can be found throughout the vineyards. Deep cherry red in the glass with purple highlights. The nose on this organic charmer is full of baking chocolate, ripe plums and sweet herbs. The palate is ultra-ripe with loads of crushed blackberry, plums and waves of garrigue-infused minerality. Pairing suggestions: Grilled sausages, cured meats, veal stew and braised oxtail.
