(From 2012 Vintage) This wine was inspired by the wines of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. The Grenache-based blends from that region are honest yet complex wines that truly reflect their origins. They can be consumed old or young and still maintain a sense of elegance. Most basic cuvees there are aged in large and neutral oak tanks. I am trying to create a new-world version of this style, with old-world sensibilities.
