Cinsault has been widely planted throughout North Africa and the Mediterranean basin due to its affinity for a warm, dry climate. It produces wines with a soft texture, modest tannins and strong meaty, spicy and mineral aromas that accent its dark, strawberry toned fruit. It has historically been used as a blending grape.
