    Winemaker's Notes:

    Winemaker Sean Boyd's homage to Bandol in the Cote d'Azur is composed of 70% Mourvèdre, 20% Cinsault and 10% Grenache. It exhibits a brilliant ruby color and seductive aromas of wild raspberries, red currants, mulberries, spiced orange peel, crushed roses and garrigue. The medium full-bodied flavors mirror the aromatics with succulent dried red fruits, intermixed with licorice, cocoa powder and scorched earth minerals. On the back, sensations of framboise liqueur and macerated currants emerge, accented by touches of toasted almonds, dried orange peel, leather, and cinnamon and clove, followed by a moderate tannin and acid finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The ripest of the lot is the 2010 Homage. A blend of 70% Mourvedre, 20% Cinsault and 10% Grenache, it displays a bright, lifted array of bramble-laced black and blue fruits, leather, sappy underbrush, peppered meats and licorice on the nose. Up-front and gorgeously fruited on the palate, it has loads of texture, yet manages to stay fresh and elegant, with juicy acidity, very fine, silky tannin and a brilliant finish that certainly doesn’t lack for length. This needs a long decant if drinking anytime soon and should have 15-20 years or more of longevity. Drink 2016-2025.
