    Winemaker's Notes:

    A blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre with just a soupçon of Cinsault, make for a bright and wonderfully gamey wine. Very youthful with toasty notes of cherry, birch, sassafras and pomegranate. While the zesty '07 is excellent right now, decanting or aging it for 2-3 more years would be all to the good.

    Pair this racey red with a bloomsdale spinach salad with sherry vinaigrette garnished with carpaccio of tuna or beef. Speaking of beef, a rare steak in any number of variations (tri-tip, hanger, New York, filet) would be quite delish. But more exotic fare such as chicken tikka masala or Tandoori lamb chops will also work wonderfully well.

    Blend: 60% Grenache, 31% Syrah, 5% Mourvèdre, and 4% Cinsault

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2007 regular bottling, the Le Cigare Volant (Normale), is almost Burgundian in its floral, black cherry, plum, and foresty notes. The wine is round, medium-bodied, elegant, and should drink nicely for 4-6 years.
