This ruby-hued wine floats out of the glass and tickles the nose with aromas of red fruits and brown sugar. On the palate, it shows balance and restraint, melding intriguing hints of earth with a suggestion of raspberry jam.
En Vie is our traditional blend paying homage to the great wines of the legendary Rhône Valley. In a specific part of the southern Rhône, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, many of the finest vineyards are grown in soils made almost entirely of small to medium sized stones. This terroir, the effect of the site on the quality of the final wine, is why we chose to grow the traditional Rhône varieties here in Temecula, where the soil and climate are very similar to the Rhône Valley. This spectacular 2019 is a worthy addition to an already marvelous pantheon of previous vintages.
Food Pairing Notes
While this wine is ready for a solo performance, we feel a black truffle risotto takes the experience to a whole new level.
