Notify me when this product is available:
A stoic yet approachable wine, with a tremendous concentration of dark, plummy fruit on the nose. Rich & lush, with delicious baking spices on the palate, especially cinnamon stick and clove. Tannins are firm, but ripe and silky. Balanced with acidity. Long, persistent, and fruity finish.
About The Varietal
The traditional and robust blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre is typically linked to the southern Rhone, notably in Chateauneuf-du-Pape. However, exceptional wines with this blend are also crafted in the New World, with Australia and California standing out as regions that produce highly praised examples.
