Cuvee Romaine is a wine with personality. The marriage of Grenache and Syrah gives it really distinctive characteristics. This is a well structured wine that makes a great partnership with red meat, meat in sauce, game and flavorful cheeses.
Varieties: 65% Grenache, 25% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah
"" Actually declassified Vacqueyras, it is a blend of 65% Grenache, 25% Mourvedre, and 10% Syrah. Slightly more rustic than the 2007, the 2008 exhibits sweet black fruits intermixed with notions of forest floor, earth, pepper, and garrigue. Gamy, rich, and chewy, with austere tannins, the overall impression is one of full-bodied power and plenty of flavor. Enjoy it over the next 3-5 years."
