This wine jumps out as a lively blend of Bing cherry, plum, and blueberry aromas with floral and spice elements throughout. On the palate, these flavors are wrapped around a medium body with soft tannins leading toward a lovely finish. A very enjoyable wine to drink now. Pair this wine with food any night of the week!
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.
La Fraternité pronounces bright red fruit from the moment you pull the cork. This Grenache, Mourvèdre, and Syrah blend is a lively wine with layered aromas and flavors of strawberries, raspberries, kirsch, violets, and spice. On the palate, these flavors wrap around a silky medium body with a smooth, fresh, and lingering finish. This wine pairs nicely with roasted chicken, grilled pork, Ahi tuna, and salmon dishes.

This wine intrigues with lifting aromas of cherry, cassis, rose petals, and violets. On the palate you find these flavors wrapped around a plush, silky, medium body with fine tannins lending balance and structure. A very enjoyable wine to drink now, but will continue to evolve with another year or two in the bottle.
