Description

New to the Epiphany line-up is Inspiration Red. This red Rhône blend was inspired by the outstanding blends produced out of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape region in Southeastern France. The 2018 Inspiration Red is made up of 42% Mourvedre, 27% Counoise, 26% Cinsault and 5% Grenache, with the majority of the fruit coming from our estate Vineyard, Rodney’s. 

It’s an approachable wine with a medium body, fresh fruit characteristics and smooth finish. On the nose you’ll find inviting aromas of strawberry, black cherry, dried herbs, cinnamon, vanilla, caramel and nutmeg. Bright red fruit flavors, vanilla and baking spices grace the palate.

Inspiration Red will pair well with a wide variety of foods, from grilled steak & lamb, to stews and rich seafood dishes.
