2017 Rendezvous

Although our lightest red in texture, the ’17 Rendezvous is by no means a simple wine. It’s a quintessential Rhone-style blend of 35.6% Cinsault, 35.3% Grenache, 23.1% Mourvedre, and 6% Viognier. This is quite different from the ’16, which was 44% Syrah. The ABV is 13.9%.

The color is an old-world ruby/garnet with a bright rim and moderate extraction. Aromas are rich and complex with a charming rustic earthiness. Ripe raspberry, black cherry, and pomegranate flirt with layers of dried rose petals, violets, cinnamon, anise, clove, and dark cocoa.

Featuring near perfect balance, the palate is elegant and refined. Soft tannins and silky smooth acids create a backdrop for this extremely fruit-forward wine. Serving temperature is important, with about 55* being optimum to highlight its freshness and graceful sophistication.
