Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is deep purple in color with a nose suggesting spices, liquorice and cooked red fruit. The palate is full bodied with elegant fruit intensity, some spice and harmonious tannins.

Enjoy with confit of duck, game, black truffle omelette, chicken with tarragon cream, creamy cheeses such as Brie or Langue or chocolate desserts.

65% Grenache, 35% Syrah
