Wine of the Week – Mas Janeil Le Petit Pas 2014

If you hate to abandon red wines in the summer, this fresh and lovely Le Petit Pas from Mas Janeil is fruity and rich but not exceedingly heavy. It’s a wine, the winemaker suggests, to sip with grilled meat or with tapas. We found it to be nicely structured and smooth with “delicate” spices. You’ll detect hints of licorice and a nose with fruit notes. It’s a Cótes Du Roussilon with 58 percent Grenache Noir, 22 percent Syrah, 18 percent Carignan and five percent Mourvédre.
