“This is a rich, enjoyable and widely available blend of 86% Grenache, 12% Syrah and 2% Mourvèdre. Aromas of blackberry, cardamom, pepper and iodine on the nose lead into a ripe palate of baked strawberry, cherry, nutmeg and cinnamon roll flavors.” - M.K.
Picked in early morning, the grapes were destemmed into small stainless steel tanks for fermentation. The wine was gently punched down several times a day for maximum color, aromatics and flavor extraction. After about 2 weeks, the wine was pressed off the skins, settled and racked into French oak barrels to age for 11 months.
