Dark garnet color. Aromas and flavors of chocolate-covered raspberry, pomegranate, black cassis, star anise, and sweet tobacco with a satiny, lively, fruity medium-to-full body and a peppery, interesting, long finish revealing notes of vanilla-sandalwood and smoky charcoal with well-integrated, medium tannins and moderate oak flavor. A flavor-packed wine complete with smoke, fruit, and spice that will be a great choice for grilled meats; a must-try, vivacious wine.

Grenache

Grenache is the world's most widely planted red variety, yet its fame is primarily as a blending variety. The most famous examples are in the Rhone Valley as part of Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Gigondas, in Spain (where it is known as Garnacha) in Priorat reds, and in Australia, where it is often blended with Shiraz.

Grenache on its own is a light red wine; indeed there are numerous versions of Grenache rosé from France and Spain' respectively, these wines are Tavel and Navarra Rosé. Tannins are very light and aromas are of wild strawberry, rhubarb and geranium.

There are also small amounts of Grenache grown in Italy (in Sardinia, as Cannonau) and the United States.
