Winemaker's Notes

100% Grenache, from 50 year old vines.

Intense garnet with violet highlights. Clean intense nose reminiscent of small red fruits, hints of licquorice and pepper. A solid presence on the palate with notes of cherry stones and licquorice. Good balance and well structured.

Critical Acclaim

"Cristia’s 2007 Cotes du Rhone reveals copious quantities of licorice, earth, tapenade, and sweet black currant and cherry fruit. Medium-bodied, pure, and soft, it is ideal for near-term consumption. "
