Wine Spectator: "Firm and dry, with notes of cedar, red and black fruit, graphite and pencil shavings. The drying tannins give the flavors traction, with a cigar box edge. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2022."
Robert Parker: "This is a beautiful wine from Mark Herold...This lineup is full of delicious, bold wines that deliver tons of pleasure."
Taking a cue from the famed Côtes du Rhône region of France, Mark's California version greets you with a cheerful ruby red color and whiffs of vibrant sweet and sour cherries intertwined with spicy white pepper. On the palate, luscious crushed raspberries and strawberries play against a fragrant blend of herbes de Provence and dusty baking spices. Medium-bodied and zesty - pairs with just about anything off grill. that's a hint - take it! 84% Grenache, 9% Syrah and 7% Mourvedre. Vibrant now, but has the ability to mellow and impress over the next 5- 7 years.
