Description:  (Grenache, Syrah, Mourvédre) We picked a classic mix of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvédre grapes in Gard, France, on the west side of the Rhône river, for the foundation of this example of Southern Rhône-style wine. The French juices were augmented with Syrah concentrate from California to add body and depth of flavor. Fermentation on the French virgin crushed grapes produces a dark, toasty, and racy wine typical of the Rhône. Bright fruit and violet aromas define the nose. Blackberry, black cherry, fig, cocoa, and licorice flavors intermingle on the palate. The finish lingers with more fruit, herbs, and a suggestion of spice. The wine shows best with 6 to 12 months of age. Pairs well with chicken, pork, and roasted vegetable dishes. With age, stands up well to grilled or roasted beef.
