Rhone Red Blends from Rhone, France

Item No. 47033

Winemaker's Notes

These ancient vineyards are now planted exclusively to Syrah and Grenache. The resulting wine is vinified using very traditional methods: 25% of the wine undergoes carbonic maceration, while the remainder is fermented in stainless steel at very cool temperatures. This produces a Cotes-du-Rhone that has a very intense nose of plums, black pepper and spice, with good mouth feel and a soft, mellow finish. 60% Grenache 40% Syrah
