Wine Description

(2009 Vintage) Made in the Cotes du Rhone style using clones predominantly from Tablas Creek Winery and Vineyard Nursery, meaning, they are cuttings from both the Château de Beaucastel in the famous Chateauneuf-du-Pape region of France and French Entav budwood. The grapes were cold soaked with extended skin contact up to 5 weeks and then gently pressed. This wine is medium bodied with strawberry and cherry overtones from the Grenache, body from the Syrah and richness from the Mourvèdre. This wine is a great choice for sipping or with a wide variety of foods.

    (2008 Vintage) Following the footsteps of the famous Cotes du Rhone of southern France, this delicious blend utilizes a combination of grape varietals to achieve this light, but exciting red wine. Allure is aged in oak barrels, allowing it to be extremely complex, yet its rich, soft and supple flavors present an attractive alternative to the many tannic wines available in the market.
