This wine is an artful blend of Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah, Counoise and Cinsaut. It's combination of vibrant berry notes accented by warm, earthy spice and soft tannins make this a red wine that matches beautifully with just about anything, especially when it's cooked on the grill. So not only is it a testimony to our commitment to Rhône varieties, it's also a hymn to the way they blend in perfect five-part harmony. While the percentages of each varietal vary from vintage to vintage, what doesn't change is the fruit-forward style of this wine. When you think about it, Z Cuvée is our vineyard in a glass. The range and depth of flavor that these varietals express is a great example of the whole being greater than the sum of the parts.
