70% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 8% Mourvedre, 2% Cinsault, 5% Carignan

Explosive fruit driven and almost savage at first, developing into more complex sensations of ripe fruit interwoven with the silky-smooth structure of subtly integrated oak, but the tension lingers to the finish, black cherries laced with kirsch and counterpoised by the savouriness of black olive tapenade, tinged with mocha.

*NEW ARRIVAL Cote Du Rhone Village, Les Coteaux, Boutinot, 2014 Retail $20.99

75% Grenache Noir, 25% Syrah

Luscious, warm ripe fruits soften by aging in used French oak barrels for 22 months with a touch of complexity.

Colour – Dark with hints of deep purple.
Nose – Intense blackcurrant and violet aromas with spicy notes of white pepper, licorice, vanilla, black olives and a hint of laurel leaves.
