This classic Rhone blend of 48% Grenache, 35% Syrah and 17% Mourvedre offers a dense ruby hue. The nose is lead by sweet, delicate black cherry and cassis fruit, spring flowers, licorice, pepper followed by a beautiful minerality on the palate. Extended aging in 100% French new oak barrels add an elegant roundness to the wine. Enjoy the beauty now and over the next decade. booker

Expressive aromas of coffee bean, smoke, fresh baked black cherry pie and a hint of brownies jump from the glass. On the palate, an entry of soft tannin quickly crescendos to intense flavors of dark chocolate, raspberries, fleur de sel caramel, plum and cherries. It finishes long with dark fruit character and bold, plushy tannins that bode well for long term enjoyment.
