Vignobles 2013, Dry Creek Valley
Vignobles is the French word for vineyards, and the sites that comprise this Rhone Valley inspired blend are some of the most select in the Dry Creek area. The resulting wine strives to encompass the wide range of complex flavors from our region by bringing together 35% Carignane, 25% Petite Sirah, 16% Syrah, 16% Grenache, and 8% Zinfandel.
This rustic Rhone blend offers intriguing aromas of wet stone and earth notes amid a fusion of dark berries and ripe plum. The silken entry quickly reveals robust, dark tones of black cherry and black raspberry enriched with traces of creamy coffee, tobacco and leather. A distinctive mineral essence appears in the finish as the flavors linger.
