About

91

Living up to its name, the 2016 Lilac Wine is floral and surprisingly delicate for a wine that tips the scales at 15% alcohol. A blend of Carignan, Grenache and Syrah, it sees only larger-format wood, leaving the purity of its mixed-berry and spice elements unvarnished by oak. It's a terrific bargain that should drink well for several more years.

Product Description:

‘’Lilac Wine’’ is a song written and composed by James Shelton in 1950 and interpreted since by a number of artists such as Nina Simone or Jeff Buckley. It is also a homage from Jeff, a fan of jazz, to his father, amateur of mature Moulin-àVent wines." -Winery
