GRAPES: 85% Grenache, 15% Syrah
TASTING NOTES: The 2016 Cotes du Rhone Les Quartz is a terrific effort that puts many Châteauneufs to shame. Aromas of crushed stone and raspberries mark the nose of this 85-15 Grenache-Syrah blend. It's full-bodied and rich, with hints of chocolaty ripeness balanced by citrus zest on the lengthy finish.
PRODUCTION NOTES: Aging of the Grenache in wooden tanks and in foudres. Syrah is aged in barrels for 14 months.
