As a wine professional, I'm always thrilled to taste wines from lesser-known regions and lesser-known varietals. This lovely Marselan is a great example of a phenomenal and unusual wine from an unexpected quarter. Marselan is a cross between Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache. The combination is quite dynamic. The color is a deep, intense purple with gorgeous aromas of cassis and plum. On the palate it is full bodied with softer tannin than a Cabernet, and round fruit, licorice, cassis and mocha spice.
