Taste/Description: Cinsault is a grown in Southern France and in Rhone. Mostly used in blends where it can add spiciness, floral and red fruit taste.

I expected this wine to be drier due to its pale color but was pleasantly surprised by the fresh nectarine taste at the initial taste followed by a raspberry finish.
