On the nose, violets combine with plums and cassis. This is a silky wine with dark red fruit and a hint of spice on the palate. The perfect bistro or food-friendly wine which pairs with everything from roasted chicken, lamb, pork, charcuterie to assorted cheeses.
This luminous, unoaked blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre is a consistent bang-for-your-buck introduction to a Northern Rhône heavyweight producer. It highlights delightfully fresh, juicy blackberry and raspberry flavors accented by whispers of cinnamon, anise and allspice. Soft in tannins and zippy on the finish, it's a wine best enjoyed now-2024.
This red delivers a lovely stream of violet, cassis and cherry puree notes, flecked with a hint of garrigue along the way, ending with a long, silky-edged finish. Drink now through 2022. 35,000 cases made, 10,000 cases imported.
