We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Their winemaking philosophy is to work in very small batches, gravity flow, natural yeasts, long lees aging for the whites and repeated racking for the reds to open them up. This is a simplified explanation of a very dedicated and artistic approach to winemaking. The wines are at once very rich and elegant, superbly balanced and thoroughly harmonious with food, never overwhelming.

Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Grenache Dark Blossom is probably the best Grenache-based blend in the vintage. A blend of 75% Grenache, 12.5% Syrah, 11.5% Mourvedre and a splash of Roussanne (fermented with 11% whole clusters), it has a perfumed, complex style, with notions of black raspberry, cassis, dried flowers, white pepper and licorice giving way to a full-bodied, layered and seamless mouthfeel. There's no shortage of fruit here, and while it's hard to resist now, it has enough tannin to warrant short-term cellaring. It should knock it out of the park through 2029.
