90% grenache 10% syrah. Aged in barriques no foudres. Dark at the core. The seductive bouquet offers attractive aromas of grilled meat fresh earth and sweet soy sauce.

The seductive bouquet offers attractive aromas of grilled meat fresh earth and sweet soy sauce. Fruit focused on the palate medium-full-bodied flavors of kirsch lead into fine spicy tannins to provide a lip-smacking finish. Aging will make this even better.

Notes of black cherry liqueur licorice tobacco leaf bouquet garni roasted meats and peppery spice emerge from this full-bodied luscious Chateauneuf meant for drinking over the next 10-12 years.

This has a distinctive apple wood and mesquite mix up front with racy linzer torte and cherry pit notes leading the way for extra plum and cassis flavors. Toasted wood and spice notes fill in on the finish. Drink now...
