Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

Color : Deep cherry color with tawny tints.

Nose: Complex bouquet of wild strawberry and blackberry, cherry, liquorice.

Taste: This is an unctuous wine with a generous and supply body, soft tannins; also presents some mineral notes. Aromas of wild cherry jam, dried fig and pomegranate at the finish.

This Châteauneuf du Pape is destined to a nice future; it can be laid down for 10 years or more. This wine goes well with grilled lamb flavored with herbs from Provence, tender loin with truffles, roasted partridges and games.

Critical Acclaim

"Shows the ripe, friendly profile of the vintage, with juicy fig and blackberry fruit backed by coffee and spice cake notes. Solid finish. Drink now through 2017. 6,500 cases made."
