Year’s Best Southern Rhone
This is a lush, generous blend of vintages (2013, ’14 and ’15), the rich fruit upholstered with fine, firm tannins. Woodsy herbals and a clear ray of tart raspberry flavor give a sense of freshness to the purple fruit while the acidity keeps the wine juicy and vivid.
This rich, meaty red captures the essence of the Southern Rhone Valley, with layers of red and dark fruit character, soft supple tannins, and complex spice notes from extended aging in small oak barrels. Offers a true and loud echo of the traditional Pegau style and profile, and is the "little brother" of the Domaine du Pegau Cuvee Reservee Chateauneuf-du-Pape.
Enjoy with game, hearty stews, and grilled meats.
Blend: 30% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 20% Merlot, and the 20% balance a mix of old‐vines Carignan, Mourvèdre, Cinsault, Danlas, Alicante and Cabernet Sauvignon.
