2016 "Les Copains" Red
This Rhône-style red blend is light bodied and fruit forward, with slight spice nuances to add interest. Cranberry, pink peppercorns and anise show good balance and concentration on the nose and palate.
Les Copains, meaning “the friends,” is a series of blends using only Rhone Valley varieties grown on the Texas High Plains that are indeed “friends” when they get together. For this red blend we use Cinsault, Mouvedre, Carignan, Syrah and Grenache fermented in stainless steel and aged in oak for a few months to accent but not cover up the character of each grape. It is dry and smooth with aromas and flavors of dark cherry, plum and berries and can be enjoyed by itself or with a wide range of foods.
