This wine is made using both white and red versions of Muscat, which accounts for its pale copper color. The bouquet is floral and rose-like, with a bit of nasturtium-like pepperiness as well. It’s weighty and slightly warm, decadently rich in peach, white chocolate and honey flavors that linger on the persistent finish.
Grenache and 25% Syrah, this is a wonderfully supple wine—so easy to drink—yet with just enough lightly dusty tannins on the finish to give it structure. Raspberry and peach fruit is accented by hints of leather and clove. Drink now and over the next few years.
