The intriguing color of Mon Couer suggests the purest of fruit. The nose is lured by young red raspberries and star anise. Lively acidity and hints of marinara and molasses coil around a powerful core of cassis, mulberry and ripe rhubarb. This is a terrific discussion wine, with its alluring tenor tones of baker’s chocolate and just a whisper of cinnamon to round out a generously long pull-through. It will reward both the chef and the guests for more than a decade.
