Deep red color with a purple border. On the nose, intense red fruits with some black cherry notes. A beautiful freshness on the palate, with roundness. The finish is long with candied red fruit notes highlighted by sweet spices. Fresh, silky finish. Food Pairings: Grilled pork chops with ratatouille, grilled prime rib of veal, goat cheeses.

Wine AdvocateIn addition to the Châteauneufs, the estate makes around 7,000 cases of their 2015 Côtes du Rhône Villages Les Cassagnes de La Nerthe, and it's a Grenache-dominated blend that incorporates 30% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre. Aged mostly in concrete (20% is in older barrels), it has attractive notes of plums, blueberries, peach pit and spring flowers in a medium-bodied, rounded, nicely textured package. It has a fruit-forward style, yet there's enough mid-palate density to keep it evolving nicely for 3-5 years.
