This cuvee is a blend of old-vine Grenache, and Syrah. The grapes are sorted and destemmed before a long maceration in tank (about three weeks), and the wine spends one year in tank prior to bottling. Its substantial color complements powerful aromas of black fruits, berries and spice. It is rich and full-bodied on the palate, with ripe tannins.
Blend: 50% Syrah, 50% Grenache
"This has a nice racy edge that lets the cherry preserves, blackberry pâte de fruit and plum sauce notes run along, while black tea, licorice snap and sweet spice fill in on the finish."
"Bright violet color. Red and dark berry aromas show good clarity and a suave floral nuance. A bit jammy but offers lots of fresh raspberry and blackberry flavors and a pliant texture. Closes with good cut and length, leaving a candied lavender note behind. This wine is ridiculously easy to drink."
