An impressive Syrah. Shows ripe, flashy blackberry and cherry fruit flavors, complexed with bacon, pepper and sweet oak notes, wrapped into gentle but firm tannins. Tastes as sweet as brown sugar, yet finishes dry, a curiosity that makes it all the more interesting. Drink now–2014.
This 100% old-vine Cinsault preserves the vineyard’s earthiness in a unique wine aged in neutral French oak. It’s light and bright, tasting of savory rhubarb, with soft layers of spice and a lingering, easy finish.
If you like your Voigniers flamboyant, this one’s for you. It’s an explosion of tangerines, golden mangoes, peaches and pears, with buttery, creamy overtones and a finish of honey. Lots of zesty acidity adds a balancing scour to the mouthfeel.
