Description

Inspired by Chateauneuf-du-Pape, this Grenache-Syrah-Mourvedre based blend is an elegant balance of deep, rich notes with acidity and bright top notes.

Tasting Notes
Appearance: 

Deep garnet in color.

Aroma: 

You are greeted with dried mulberries, plum and mossy bark on the nose.

Palate: 

 In the glass, potpourrie and spice notes open up to notes of blackberry, currant, dried cranberry and a hint of cacao nib. The palate is lively, plush, and textural leading to a long, lingering finish.
