Winemaker's Notes

A blend of 70% Grenach, 20% Syrah, 7% Mourvèdre and 3% Cinsault.

Deep dark color, with barnyard on the nose that mostly gives way to reveal earthy black fruit, beetroot and iron in both flavor and aroma. Big, chewy and muscular, this is the epitome of great Vacqueyras.

Critical Acclaim

"Inky ruby. Medicinal cherry and bitter chocolate on the nose, with a strong peppery quality reminiscent of syrah (but this is at least 70% grenache). Mineral-accented red berry and cherry flavors are refreshingly bitter, showing mounting sweetness on the close. Pretty complex, and wild too. 89-92"
