Description: Aromas of cherry, spice and earth with a hint of maple syrup precede a mid-bodied and balanced red with flavors of cherry, plums and spice.
Winemaker’s Notes: One would expect Grenache to be
playing a supporting role, but in this wine its high alcohol and berriness are fleshed out with with the desired qualities of the other grapes’ known earthy and spice notes and fuzzy tannins.
Pairings: Pomegranate marinated lamb olive tepanade and chevre crostini, or Spanish Roncal cheese.
