Tasting Notes

A classic Rhone-style blend of Syrah, Mourvedre, and Grenache.  This rich ruby colored wine emits aromas and flavors of licorice, pepper, cassis, and ripe blackberries.  Supple tannins but smooth texture create a lingering spice and black currant finish.  Pair with marinated lamb or grilled red meats.
