For the 2018 vintage, our winemaker sought out Counoise in an effort to further develop aromatic complexity in our Rhône blends. Instead, we discovered a wine that we fell so in love with, we decided that even at only 50 cases, we needed to bottle it as a strand alone wine. Before your lips ever touch the glass, you are intoxicated with aromas of rose petal and ripe red raspberry. When you take that first sip, you'll discover flavors of strawberry, cedar, and baking spice that we are sure you'll love as much as we did. Salud!
