The 2002 Annie's Lane Copper Trail Shiraz Grenache Mourvedre blends these three
traditional varieties together to produce a style displaying great complexity of flavor and
a smooth balanced palate. The Shiraz (54%) gives the wine structure and depth. The
Grenache (33%) adds sweet, fleshy fruity notes to the palate and the Mourvedre (13%)
ties the flavors together with warm spice tones and a silky texture.
The wine has aromas of blackcurrant and liquorice with a hint of cinnamon, enhanced
by subtle use of oak. The full, soft, rich palate is characterized by spice, with a long velvety
finish. This savory style of wine is the perfect complement to richly flavored food.
