Four thirteen stands for its use of 4 of the 13 grapes typically used to make Chateauneuf du Pape. This is made very much in that style with rich dark fruits along with notes of garrigue and minerals which leads to a crisp, fresh finish. A nice effort.
What a gorgeous well-balanced new world take on a Rhone styled wine. Flavorful but not at all sweet or overpowering. Nice backbone. Cracked black pepper. Red fruit. Really delicious, enjoyable, and elegant at the same time. Will seek out more from this producer.
