"Like the rhythm of the saraband, a stately old dance in triple time, the long note of the second beat for this wine is played by Grenache - 60% of the blend, with 25 % Carignan (part of which underwent malolactic fermentation in large barrels) and 15% Syrah for support and structure. The plummy palate is fruit-packed, with a hint of garrigue, smooth tannins, and a long, lingering finish. Here’s to Handel." -Importer
