Winemaker's Notes

A nose of spicy blackberries and black cherries with a hint of menthol and allspice. Seamless, concentrated, single-vineyard blend of Carignane, Mourvedre, and Syrah with fruit flavors of dark, ripe black cherries, mineral and spice.

Blend: Carignan 60%, Mourvèdre 25%, Syrah 15%

Aric is local dialect for Alaric, King of the Visigoths who gave his name to the mountain whose slopes conceal the Lignères fabulous terroir. The surname of a grandmother, a direct descendant of those Barbarian warriors, was Amalric, and a question still haunts the family today: had Alaric known that his mountain possessed such wonderful wine, would he have plundered Rome in 410 AD?
