Tasting Notes

A stunning red wine from Provence that comes from 35-year-old Syrah vines. The extra years of bottle-aging have rounded out the tannins and assertive, spicy red fruits. Excellent with lamb, be it chops, stew, or rack.

Cabernet Sauvignon

The result of an illicit affair a hundred-odd years ago between Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon today enjoys more worldwide popularity than both of its parents combined. It is the principal grape of Bordeaux, and as such has rightly earned its place among the greatest and most long-lived wines of the Old World; of course, it is also the most heralded grape of California,...
