    Style: Earthy & Spicy

    Item no. 107806

    Winemaker's Notes:

    85% Grenache, 15% Syrah

    Vineyards are located at an elevation of 400m in northern Vaucluse (left bank of the Rhone), where Grenache gives concentrated and deeply colored wines.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2009 Cercius red, a Visan Cotes du Rhone-Villages, is composed of 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah. It represents a naked expression of Cotes du Rhone as it is aged completely in concrete prior to bottling. This medium to full-bodied wine possesses a deep ruby/purple color in addition to copious black currant and black cherry fruit interwoven with graphite, crushed rocks, and spice, excellent fruit intensity, a full-bodied mouthfeel, good acidity, and light tannins. It should drink nicely for 3-4 years.
