Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Winemaker's Notes

The Cotes du Rhone Villages Massif d'Uchaux Cuvee Genest is made from 50% Grenache and 50% Syrah. It undergoes a longer cuvaison, 18 months of aging in tank, and is bottled without filtration. This rich and deeply concentrated wine goes best with robust foods and ripe cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"Ripe and forward, with the vintage's juicy core of plum, blackberry and black currant fruit backed by tobacco and briar notes that keep the finish lively. Rock-solid. Drink now through 2011. 200 cases imported."
