(2012 Vintage) We really like the terroir of Vinsobres, a beautiful village located near Vaison la Romaine; The vineyard is at an altitude of 300m and is situated for the most part on terraces. Vinsobres is particularly suitable for Syrah because it preserves the finesse which is often lost in more southern climates. It develops notes of violet, smoked meat and blackberries. Grenache is also suited to this terroir, full bodied and not heavy, with notes of black chocolate, cherry and typical Garrigue aromas.
Rhone wine from Costco. Barnyard, rosemary, orange, forest on the nose. Good acids and medium low tannins. Excellent food wine.
very peppery , hints of plums and dark fruit on the nose. spicy finish.
very spicy with notes of berries needs a lot of air
