Wine Review: This ruby red colored Syrah based blend seriously over-delivers considering the very reasonable price tag! It opens with inviting aromas of blackberry, black raspberry and black currant with notes of cigar box and leather. On the palate, it is light to medium bodied, well-balanced and smooth with vibrant and juicy fruit flavors. Those flavors are a blend of bright red and black berries with notes of cranberries and red currants. It concludes with some nice minerality and evolves into a pleasant lingering slightly dry finish. - Karen and Stu

Winemaker Notes: Le Rouge is a classic blend of Syrah and Grenache. It shows the lush red fruits and floral character that are typical of Grenache, together with the brambly blackberry and dark fruits of Syrah. The wine is concentrated and plush on the palate, with juicy persistence.
