Description

Inspiration is red Rhône blend inspired by the outstanding blends produced out of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape region in Southeastern France. The 2020 Inspiration Red is made up of 28% Mourvedre, 26% Grenache, 24% Cinsaut, 19% Counoise and 3% Syrah 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.

Wine Critic Reviews
"The 2020 Inspiration Red is based on 28% Mourvèdre, 26% Grenache, 24% Cinsault, 19% Counoise, and the rest Syrah. This translucent ruby/plum-hued 2020 has outstanding aromatics of ripe black cherries, leather, sandalwood, and gamey, spicy herbs as well as medium-bodied richness and depth on the palate. It’s textured, has fine-grained tannins, and outstanding length. It really shows its Mourvèdre component today, and I love its complexity." ~ Jeb Dunnuck "Blistered cranberry, toasted fennel and sanguine aromas show on the nose of this blend...The toasted herb note carries through the palate, where fresh currant and raspberry flavors meet with cracked-pepper spices." ~ Wine Enthusiast
