Tasting Notes

The southern Rhône Valley is home to the endearing Vacqueyras appellation. This is a red wine that is full-bodied, visibly dark in color with ample fruit on the palate that will please many. The vines are planted on limestone soils which gives this wine more structure and minerals. Unoaked and fermented with natural yeasts.

Syrah

We'd like to clear this up once and for all: the Shiraz grape is genetically identical to Syrah. Australian winemakers put "Shiraz" on the map (and, many would argue, vice versa), and the term is now used throughout much of the New World. Let it never be said, however, that Shiraz and Syrah are the same thing: the region in which the grape is grown determines much about the flavor of the wine it...
