Bandol Domaine De Fregate 2003

This dry red wine from Provence, France is made from 80% Mourvedre and 20% Grenache grapes (vinified separately) and oaked in barrels for 18 months. Light ruby red, and warmer colors around the edges. A good casual wine to have a meal with (meats, cheeses, mushrooms, or red sauce) -- there is a light berry and oak nose, with dry raisin and moderate tannins and 13-14% alcohol. Bon! (Thanks Carolina.)
