Gently mulled black currant and blackberry fruit is backed by singed wood spice, dried anise and black tea notes, with a fine chalky mineral streak appearing through the finish. Grenache and Syrah. Best from 2022 through 2030. 1,500 cases made, 400 cases imported. — JM
Ripe black cherry and plum are shaded by savory tones of tobacco, spice and earth in this richly textured yet finessed wine. It's full bodied and succulent but balanced by crisp acidity and a tannic frame. Immediately enjoyable it should hold through 2022. -ANNA LEE C. IIJIMA
Plump, pristine cassis and mulberry flavors maintain transparency in this unoaked blend of Grenache and Syrah. It's decadent and ripe but briskly balanced on the midpalate. Silky, integrated tannins accentuate its immediately enjoyable style. -ANNA LEE C. IIJIMA
Aromatics of cherries, blackberries, and plums meld with accents of pepper and earth on the nose. A sip delivers flavors of black cherry, plum, and blackberry that flow into highlights of spice, smoked meat, and minerals. A food-friendly acidity, plush tannins, and vibrant flavors make this wine a good match for gourmet sausages.
