Tasting Notes

Culled from vineyards across the southern coast of France, this light-bodied and easygoing dry red is meant to be consumed by the Mediterranean. Even if you aren't there physically, you can dream of it with some olives, cured meats, and excellent bread. A blend of Syrah, Grenache, and Carignan, this is dark fruit forward with a hint of something savory.

Staff Pick Notes

At a recent, free tasting here at Astor, I had the pleasure of trying this wine and learning a little bit about their story. A winery owned, not by an ego-driven businessman as a hobby, but a couple friends who have passion for quality-minded wine and giving back to mother earth. Part of the proceeds of this wine, a must try, go to ocean cleanups that reduced plastic pollution in over 70 countries. You can look on their Instagram page, @souleilwines, and find out their current environmental projects. This wonderful, value-driven wine, is a blend of 80% Syrah and 10% each of Grenache Noir and Mourvèdre. The organic fruit is first destemmed and then vinified in stainless steel to preserve the natural acidity, freshness and fruit-forwardness of this wine. A beautiful wine for under $16.

The distinguished Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Gigondas appellations are both...

Mourvèdre

Known as Mataro in California and Monastrell in Spain, Mourvèdre can produce bold, tannic, highly alcoholic red wines. They usually show no shortage of fruit as well, and the best examples keep it all in perfect balance. Rhône-style blends are cropping up all over the world, and one of the classic tried-and-true combinations is "GSM," or Grenache-Syrah-Mourvèdre. The "M" contributes focus and...

Syrah

We'd like to clear this up once and for all: the Shiraz grape is genetically identical to Syrah. Australian winemakers put "Shiraz" on the map (and, many would argue, vice versa), and the term is now used throughout much of the New World. Let it never be said, however, that Shiraz and Syrah are the same thing: the region in which the grape is grown determines much about the flavor of the wine it...
