Item no. 100436
A blend of Grenache, Syrah and a touch of Mourvèdre, hand-harvested and sorted from multiple passes from a steep mountain vineyard perched on the sides of the Dentelles de Montmirail; aged primarily in older barrels. A knock-out wine.
Inky ruby. Powerfully scented aromas of blackberry, brown spices, lavender and graphite. Fleshy but energetic, with spicy dark berry flavors and a velvety texture, with no tannins to get in the way of the fruit. Finishes broad, sappy and persistent. This is a blend of 67% grenache, 27% syrah and 6% mourvedre, vinified with 50% of the stems. 89-92
Ripe and broad, but defined, with mouthwatering roasted apple wood and mulled plum and blackberry fruit flavors on a rounded, lush frame. Long and smoldering on the finish, with a lingering iron note. Drink now through 2013.
