Crunchy red-fruit aromas of field strawberry, red currant, and raspberries dominate, but there's hints of blueberry, mixed-berry compote and even some cherry jam. If it's a berry, chances are you'll find it on the exuberant nose of this red! Behind all the fresh fruit is a hint of dried herb and earth.
Like the nose, the palate is almost entirely about red fruit - fresh raspberry, cherry, and strawberry flavours vie for attention in this soft, medium-bodied wine. The finish is fresh and lifted, with a pop of acidity that makes it bright and refreshing. This is a perfect red to chill slightly before enjoying.
Pretend it's summer, and try this bright, fruit-driven red with slow-smoked pork ribs in sweet and spicy BBQ sauce, or match with a grilled vegetable quesadilla.
Sometimes also referred to as 'cassis', this black fruit tasting note is common in red wines.
A sweet, almost caramel-like aroma reminiscent of your favourite juicy, red berry.
Eating handfuls of berries straight from the bush, your fingers stained purple for days to come.
Spreading grandma's homemade jam on your morning toast (yes, the bread was homemade too).
Your windowsill herb garden gives off a lovely herbal smell every time you walk by.

Located in the small, picturesque Languedoc village of Montpeyroux, CastelBarry is a cooperative cellar that was founded in 1950. When the original 75 growers came together to form the cellar, the five jobs that were created at the co-op made the winery the town's largest employer! Since then, the values of sustainable agriculture and the focus on high-quality wine has remained unchanged, and the winery pays tribute to these values with Les Coopains: a range of wines that highlight the region's star grape varieties. A play on "copain," which means friend or buddy, and a nod to the cooperative structure of the winery, Les Coopains Rouge is made from 100% Grenache (known as Garnacha in its Spanish homeland). The grapes undergo a process called carbonic maceration, made popular in Beaujolais, to preserve fresh fruit aromas, and the finished wine is aged entirely in stainless steel.
Enjoy this juicy red at about 16 C over the next few years.
