Tasting Notes

Grenache leads the way in this Rhône-style blend, bursting with a depth of fruit and spice notes. Black and red berries, star anise, and cardamom play with toasty barrel spice and cocoa aromas. Well-defined tannins support flavors of black cherry, braised meat, white pepper, and chai spice. With its lingering intensity and racy acidity, the tingling finish invites another sip. Enjoy!
