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

Cherry blossoms, dusty road, red plums, herb de provénce. Rosewater and red cherry on the palate, nimble with medium body. Grippy finish with firm Grenache tannins and hints of olive and sagebrush.

Critical Acclaim

"A delightful southern Rhône-style wine for drinking now. It’s juicy and fruity in cherries, red currants, bacon, spices and herbs, with a complex structure of acids and tannins. Easy to drink and upscale at the same time. "
