This particular Tavel is a blend of grenache, syrah, cinsault, and clairette grapes. It tastes of red berries and dark cherries, with echoes of dried herbs in its finish. Very versatile at the supper table, it can take the place of a red wine on a hot day when virtually any red will feel too heavy. Serve it well-chilled alongside grilled chicken or pork, or even with burgers and hot dogs at a cookout. It's a versatile crowd pleaser.
