Cotes du Crow’s is our unique blend of the two noble, predominant red varietals of France’s southern Rhone Valley: Grenache and Syrah. This year we decided again to include a small amount of Tempranillo - its spice and earth tones are a beautiful complement to Grenache and Syrah.

The wine was fermented in open top tanks and received manual punch-downs. This enabled good extraction and structure development with pleasant tannins. After fermentation, the wine was transferred to French oak barrels (7% new), giving subtle spice and vanilla characters without overpowering the elegant fruit profile. This Rhone-style blend has a rich ruby red color, highlighted with purple edges. Raspberry, boysenberry jam, and anise aromas jump out of the glass. The wine is medium-full bodied with soft tannins, offering a mouthful of black plum and raspberry hard candy. Its weight and balance make it a perfect pairing with anything off the grill.
