Starting with the 2014 harvest, we decided to source additional fruit from our vineyard partners to create new barrel selection opportunities for the La Fraternité and En Hommage Rhone Blends. After finalizing the barrels which created those wines, and our special wine club blends, we blended the remaining barrels to release as our Red Wine. This wine is our tribute to the everyday Cotes du Rhone blends that are perfect to enjoy any night of the week.
This wine jumps out of the glass with an aroma profile of strawberry compote and ripe raspberries with nuanced herbs de provence and fresh floral elements throughout.

An enjoyable wine now that will age gracefully for another 7-10 years.
Mémoire opens with layered aromas of honeysuckle, preserved lemon, beeswax, and ripe pear. On the palate, these flavors wrap around a luscious and savory texture balanced with bright acidity on the finish. Fermented and aged in a concrete egg and neutral oak barrels for 9 months.
