Planted in their vineyards is very old Grenache of nearly 60 years, as well as 40 year old plantings of Syrah. Serious leaf-pulling and crop-thinning is practiced each vintage by the Darde brothers to ensure maximum ripeness and deep, saturated wines. To say the least, we are proud of the results. The Grenache is tank-fermented, with a small portion of the Syrah cask-aged. Rich in color, this wine exudes powerful red fruits and spice. The wine is well textured with ripe tannins that lay behind the fruit to create this wonderfully juicy, round wine. Rich in color and flavor, this inexpensive red will age gracefully over the next two to five years.
