More about this wine from Rhône Valley, France
The Rhône Valley is one of the most storied wine regions in the world. It is beloved by American somms for its history, culture, and mostly because the winemakers here have a true sense of terroir — a fancy word for having a sense of place.

These winemakers started the trend that wine should be from a place and have learned the Rhône DNA stamp on the juice tastes pretty damn good. Grapes and winemaking styles are tied to the climate and environment, and the smartest winemakers play to the strengths of their land. The Rhône is never going to be a place for explosively jammy and big wines, but it is a place for the wine classics!

This Rhône blend is made of iconic French grapes i.e. Grenache, Carignan, and Syrah. In the glass you'll find dark fruit like plums and black cherry, and as you sip you'll enjoy a juicy, supple, and elegant wine just like the French. Oui, oui!
