This appealing, southern Rhône blend is Châteauneuf-du-Pape in style, with lush, red fruits and pleasing traces of the estate vineyard’s characteristic dusty tannins. Deep ruby black in color with a violet rim, this wine produces mild aromas of cherry, mocha, cedar and spice. While Mourvedre contributes elegance, structure and lively acidity to the blend – producing flavors of raspberry, roasted coffee and hints of tobacco – the Grenache adds a beautiful peppery note. This is a supple sipper that will go great with spicy Asian pork dishes and other exotic meats.
