Winemaker's Notes

Blend: Syrah (90%) and Grenache Noir (10%)

Dark, intense ruby red color. The bouquet is intensely complex with hints of red fruit, spice and leather. The palate is dense and full-bodied, with rich flavors of blackberry and licorice accented by distinct yet integrated woody notes and firm tannins.

Located in France's southern Rhône Valley, Château Lamargue (Lah-Marg) comprises 210 acres of vineyard in the up-and-coming Costières de Nîmes appellation. The estate boasts a showcase winery equipped with the most advanced winemaking technology as well as new French and American oak barriques. Investment to date stands at over $12 million dollars. The Grand Réserve is a very special wine that is only produced in years promising unique potential. Yields are reduced in the vineyards which translates into less than one bottle of wine per vine.

Just opened this and it is awesome. Some of the fruit has muted nicely, and it still has wonderful structure and a nice firm grip. Would definitely buy this again for the price!
