Dark fruit aromas of black raspberry, blackberry, black cherry with sage, marjoram and baking spice.  The palate full and hearty yet crisp in texture, blending dark cherry with black cardamom, white pepper, currant and dark chocolate, as the acidity and tannins push through to the finish.  A gorgeous expressive wine!

The 2017 vintage produced a Grenache that is rich and flavorful. As with prior vintages, they blended a little Syrah into the mix, helping to add structure and depth to the palate. Prevailing on the nose are dark berry aromas with baking spices, vanilla and anise. Bright strawberry and cherry dominate the palate, rounded out with notes of white pepper, currant and dark chocolate.
The highly intense nature of this Grenache lends itself to be paired with braised or smoked meat, but it would be delicious with cassoulet or a classic charcuterie board.
