Description

"...an attractive red Rhone blend loaded with plump red berry fruit. Sweet tobacco, cedar, menthol, licorice and tobacco develop in the glass, but the Gypsy is mostly a wine to enjoy for its forward, juicy personality." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous

Gypsy has become a favorite in the tasting room due to its approachable medium bodied palate, fresh fruit quality and smooth long finish. The 2017 vintage is beautifully living up to its predecessors' reputations!!

On the nose are inviting aromas of strawberry, black cherry, dried herbs, cinnamon, vanilla, caramel and nutmeg. Bright red fruit flavors, vanilla and baking spices grace the palate.  Lighter, approachable and ready to drink now, our 2017 Gypsy will pair beautifully with blackened salmon, ribs, burgers and pork chops.
