Our Berthet-Rayne Castel Mireio has a beautiful deep ruby color with a dark purple tint. With a very expressive and intense nose of black fruits, sweat spices, a hint of caramel and fruit liqueurs (raspberry and blackberry). With air, notes of menthol and scents of “garrigue” and cedar wood appear.
These notes are followed by a hint of chocolate and cacao powder. The combination of these different aromas make this a very complex wine. The palate is very juicy and fresh. The tannins are present, but soft and smooth. Although already quite charming, this wine has promising future with bottle age.

The deep, meaty nose pulls you into this rich and concentrated yet precisely contoured Cairanne. Tons of fine tannins enable this expansive red to keep the generous alcohol well in check, then comes the long, herb-liqueur finish that is dry enough to pull you back for more. A cuvee of grenache, syrah and mourvedre. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.
