Winemaker Notes

Planted in their vineyards is very old Grenache of nearly 60 years,as well as 40 year old plantings of Syrah. Serious leaf-pulling andcrop-thinning is practiced each vintage by the Darde brothers toensure maximum ripeness and deep, saturated wines. To say theleast, we are proud of the results.
The Grenache is tank-fermented, with a small portion of the Syrah cask-aged. Rich in color, this wine exudes powerful red fruits and spice. The wine is well textured with ripe tannins that lay behind the fruit to create this wonderfully juicy, round wine. Rich in color and flavor, this inexpensive red will age gracefully over the next two to five years.The blend is 60% Grenache & 40% Syrah.

Wine Enthusiast
A blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah, this is another example of the fine values coming out of the Costières de Nîmes. It’s a medium-bodied wine with a velvety texture and a fine balance between herbs and raspberry fruit on the one hand and dark berries and earth on the other. Drink it over the next 2–3 years.

Setting the standards for red wine production worldwide, France holds rank as the source of the world’s most popular red grape varieties. Famous for their elegance, grace and longevity, the red wines of France come in a variety of styles.

Burgundy claims some of the most desirable vineyard real estate on the planet and remains a source of the world’s most coveted Pinot noir. A powerhouse producer of red wines based on Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, Bordeaux sits on France’s western side, separated from the Atlantic Ocean by a coastal pine forest. The region’s mild, maritime climate and gravel-heavy soils are perfect for the production of highly structured, cellar-worthy red wines. In the south, the long and narrow Rhône River Valley produces full-bodied, flavorful reds. Syrah makes its home in the Northern Rhône where a continental climate and steep hillside vineyards create some of the best in the world. Southern Rhône’s Grenache-based blends easily charm most any wine enthusiast. For those after a more delicate red, the Loire Valley’s Cabernet Franc maintains a loyal line of followers.
