Five red grape varieties come together in this year’s Anna’s red blend. Based on grape varieties originating in France’s Chateauneuf-du-Pape region this red Rhone style is referred to a GSM blend, emphasizing the dominant grapes – Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre. This vintage marks an interesting departure from this tradition placing emphasis on Cinsaut and Counoise (a combined 40%), varieties that typically play a supportive role in the mix.
Expressive aromas of blackberries and a subtle roasted meat, herbs-de-Provence quality are restated in the supple textured, well integrated flavors of dark berries, bouillon and smoked herb-olive paste. Drink now through 2020.
