Winemaker Notes

A ruby robe with flashes of violet.

The complex, aromatic bouquet boasts rich aromas of red and dark fruits (blackberry, blackcurrant, cherry and redcurrant) blended with toasted notes supplied by the oak barrels.

Supple and well-balanced on the palate, complementing the intense aromas of the bouquet.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 91
Wine Spectator
A concentrated red, with black cherry preserves, blackberry tart and olive flavors, covered with a dusting of cocoa powder. Shows an underlying minerality and good complexity, all backed by solid acidity. Ends with a lingering, spicy finish. Drink now through 2018.
W&S 90
Wine & Spirits
A blend of 50 percent syrah with 35 percent carignan and 15 percent mourvèdre, this is licorice-dark and chewy, with lots of spicy red berry fruit. It’s dense but not overly extracted, a juicy red that feels real. USA Wine West, Sausalito, CA

Essentially a mountain on France’s Mediterranean coast, La Clape's vineyards vary in elevation by as much as nearly 1,000 feet. This tiny region also boasts some of France’s highest total hours of sunshine and produces aromatic whites from the Bourboulenc variety as well as full-bodied red blends from the usual Rhône suspects.

With bold fruit flavors and accents of sweet spice, red Rhône blends originated from France’s southern Rhône Valley. Grenache, supported by Syrah and Mourvèdre typically form the base of the blend, while Carignan, Cinsault and Counoise often come in to play. With some creative interpretation, Rhône blends have also become popular in Priorat, Washington, Australia and California.

Tasting Notes for Rhône Blends

A Rhône blend is a dry, red wine and will vary according to its individual components, as each variety brings something different to the glass. Grenache is the lightest in color but contributes plenty of ripe red fruit and a plush texture. Syrah supplies dark fruit flavors, along with savory, spicy and earthy notes. Mourvèdre is responsible for a floral perfume and earthy flavor as well as structure and a healthy dose of color. New World examples tend to be fruit-forward in style, while those from the Old World will often have more earth, structure and herbal components on top of ripe red and blue fruit.

Perfect Food Pairings for Rhône Blends

Rhône Blends work with a wide variety of meat-based dishes, playing equally well with beef, pork, lamb or game. Braised beef cheeks, grilled steak or sausages, roasted pork and squab are all fine pairings.

Sommelier Secrets for Rhône Blends

Some regions like to put their own local spin on the red Rhône blend—for example, in Australia’s Barossa Valley, Shiraz is commonly blended with Cabernet Sauvignon to add structure, tannin and a long finish. Grenache-based blends from Priorat often include Carignan (known locally as Cariñena) and Syrah, but also international varieties like Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In California, anything goes, and it is not uncommon to see Petite Sirah make an appearance.
