Reviews and Awards

"This wine is a perfect example of the region’s tradition of using small amounts of Syrah and Mourvèdre grapes to deepen the flavor and darken the color of a Grenache-based wine, which results in flavors that evoke not just ripe blackberries, but also the peppery scent of spiced, cured meats like soppressata salami."
