BackgroundThe story goes like this: Long ago, during the 17th century, the O’Neills and O’Reillys were two revolutionary Irish families. They formed a rowing competition to reserve rights to some highly regarded land. The two rowing teams agreed that the first to touch the land, after rowing across the lake, would become ruler of the land. O'Reillys boat was falling behind so a member of the crew grabbed his own sword, cut off his hand and threw it ashore, winning the title to rule the land. This land still remains in the family.
DescriptionA dark story needs a dark wine, which is why we created this blend, typical of a traditional Châteauneuf-du-Pape.The first sip of this wine surprises the palate with soft, supple flavors of raspberry jam and currant. The midpalateopens up to a complex layering of minty eucalyptus, black pepper and leather and finishes with a structuredbackbone of earth and spice.
