The gorgeous ruby color leads you to black currant and cocoa overtones with hints of cinnamon and dried cranberries on the palate and a long, lingering finish! Very approachable now but will show off its luscious style beautifully as it ages!

2011 Rendition

When we released this wine in our 2013 Fall Club, we knew we had an exceptional blend. With such a limited production, we decided to allocate the remaining cases on release and cellar them away for our Insiders. The vibrant color leads to an incredibly well-integrated wine with a savory nose of smoke, leather and cherry. The Syrah stands out on the nose while the Grenache shines on the palate with flavors of bright red fruit with a hint of raspberry. Enjoy as you, our special Insiders, are receiving the remaining cases of this wine!
