Cuvée Moriah Grenache 2015

Coming off the heels of a delicious 2014 vintage, the 2015 confirms that the duo of Grenache and Mourvédre is strinking. The Grenache and Mourvédre are yin to the other’s yang. The Grenache’s classic characteristics of pomegranate, kirsch, and blood orange are on full display. On the palate, the Grenache lends elegance and freshness to Cuvée Moriah. The Mourvédre is darker in nature, providing contrast and broadening the flavors. It combines spiced-plum and Herbs de Provence with a mouth-coating texture for this intense wine. The Syrah polishes the final blend with additional brightness and beautiful length.
