    Winemaker's Notes:

    Agly Brothers is a traditional and generous red blend comprised of Carignan, Shiraz and Grenache from 8 acres of old bush vines planted in hard schist soils in the early 1900s. The grapes are hand-picked, with fermentation carried out in small, cement tanks. Soft punch down is practiced for better fruit extraction, while seasoned French oak adds subtle spice. In limited quantities, a must have for wine enthusiasts.

    Agly Brothers is nurtured biodynamically and made with simplicity from vines grown in the Southern French town of Latour de France, located in Corbières zone in the hills above the Roussillon plains. Literally translated as ‘The Tower of France', this small village borders the ancient kingdoms of Catalonia and France. Mature vineyards lay abandoned in this area of steep, arid slopes due to the high cost of farming, thus it is the quest of the Laughton and Chapoutier families to rediscover and fully express these exceptional, low-yielding sites. This wine is the beginning of that quest.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A zesty, full-bodied red, with lush flavors of huckleberry, raspberry and dark plum. Plush midpalate, with a finish of cocoa powder and ripe cherry. Drink now through 2012. 50 cases imported.
