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.

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. On the palate, these aromas transform into a seamless set of layered flavors which are wrapped around a medium body with round tannins leading toward a fresh and expressive finish. An enjoyable wine now that will age gracefully for another 7-10 years.

En Hommage opens with aromas and flavors of blueberries, violets, black currants and plum. Additional nuances of black pepper, minerality and spice complement the driving blue fruit flavors with refined tannins that wrap around a smooth, refined and delicate core. This wine pairs nicely with grilled pork tenderloin, lamb chops, and hearty Italian dishes.
