Winemaker's Notes

Our goal with Le Mistral is to produce a consistently high quality, Mediterranean-style wine that blends the unique components of several varietals into an harmonious whole. In 1995, the high percentage of Grenache contributed sweet, concentrated aromas of strawberry, pepper and spice; the Mourvèdre provided a meaty component, and the Syrah lent structure and tannin. The small amounts of Petite Sirah and Alicante Bouschet helped deepen the color - and the complexity - of the finished wine. The end result is softer than the 94 vintage, but with greater concentration of flavor. It may be enjoyed now or cellared for several years.
