Winemaker’s Notes: This wine exudes very forward fruit and is a terrific example of super-ripe, old-vine Grenache displaying characteristics of cherries and blackberries alongside of the classic Provencal spice and herb notes.

Winemaker’s Notes: This year, the grape varieties benefited from a warm, dry spring and summer. August was particularly nice and yielded a slow, regular ripening. The cool evenings enhanced the aromatic potential of the grapes. The result of all being a perfectly balanced vintage with fruitiness and minerality. The bright ruby hue leads to ripe cherry aromas. It has a juicy mouth-feel combined with supple, velvety tannins.
