Winemaker's Notes:

The color is a deep ruby with a purple edge. The Syrah grape shows on the nose, with red fruit, black cherry and licorice. On the palate, this combines power with elegance with its velvety, fleshy texture. The finish shows the lift typical of the cooler parts of the Rhône valley.

Serve with lightly seasoned food.

About Perrin et Fils:

Jean-Pierre, François and Pierre Perrin are proud to present their fine wines, inspired by the memory of their grandfather, Pierre Perrin. Using the same techniques employed at Château de Beaucastel, the Perrins have added some interesting appellations to their already impressive list of wines.

"Jean-Pierre and François Perrin - chosen among the Most Influential Wine Personalities of the last 20 Years. The Perrins believe in natural winemaking, unfiltered wines, and routinely produce long-lived classics that are among the finest in the world." -Robert M. Parker, Jr's The Wine Advocate
