Beautiful deep red in color. Complex and rounded, with the notes of wild herbs, spices and red fruits.
The Grenache grape is, vinified at low temperature
and raised in new oak barrels for twelve months, to
express the freshness of the black fruits and licorice.
Serve at with roast red meats, stews, stilton & Camembert cheese.

Big & Bold
Right out of the bottle smooth. This wine is deep rich and bold. Found this perfect by its self soaking in the hot tub.
This may have a tad more depth than the $8 Evodia garnacha, which this reminds me of, but not enough to warrant spending over 4 times as much. I'm slightly indifferent about this one.
