Product Description

V. 2018

47% Syrah, 42% Grenache, 11% Mourvedre

A bril­liant gar­net col­or, the 2018 46 Reserve pro­vides beau­ti­ful­ly charged aro­mat­ics the moment it hits the glass. Ripe straw­ber­ries, rasp­ber­ries, red licorice, caramel, laven­der and berg­amot all dance from the glass. As you sip the wine, you are pre­sent­ed with a delight­ful ten­sion between the silky tan­nin struc­ture and the bright acid­i­ty of the wine work­ing in won­der­ful tan­dem. Lus­cious red berries, cin­na­mon, cola, anise, pipe tobac­co, Earl Grey tea and crushed lime­stone, all sing in every deca­dent sip.
