This is one of our better finds in the top shelf French red blend category. Known mostly for producing the world's finest Rose, Bandol is built upon Mourvedre, a deeply aromatic and seductive varietal that grows well in the coastal Mediterranean vineyards of this region. Mostly Mourvedre with a splash of Carignan and Grenache, this luxurious red is opaque in this glass with exotic aromas of garrigue and raspberry liqueur, while the palate is lush and savory with crushed black and blue berries finishing with sage-laced tannins. Red Bandol is rather rare and often very spendy, but this wine comes in at the hottest of prices. Pair with rich meats like lamb or venison, or try with any briny dish such as grilled Black cod with olives and capers.
On rare occasions, a chosen vintage of a wine may sell out or be replaced by a new release after your order is placed. With bottles of wine listed under $15, we will not hold up an order and will simply automatically substitute the wine with the comparable vintage. Please be assured that we will only substitute with a vintage for the same type, varietal and winery.
During extreme weather during the Summer and Winter months we do recommend delaying shipments. We do not like to ship if the weather is above 85 degrees or below 32 degrees. To ensure the safety of your product we do recommend holding the shipment. We will hold in our temperature controlled facility until weather permits.

In this case, we will watch the weather closely and will remove the hold and ship your order as soon as conditions permit. The release dates will vary, and because there is no specified date for delivery, the warehouses will ship it as weather permits. If the Hold Until Safe option is released and your order is shipped, you will receive a shipping notice with the tracking number link.
