Bronzinelle, Rhone Style Blend


A French man told me once “we know something about winemaking that the rest of the world doesn’t”. bronxinelleAlthough it sounded arrogant at the time, many times I have pondered –holding a glass in my hand- if after all he was right. One of those times was tasting this juicy Rhone-style blend led by Syrah. Dark ruby red with a flash of purple, the nose brings licorice, dust, spice and “Grenachey” aromas of stewed, sweet red fruit. A lot of very fine tannins in this broth, coating the mouth with a drying –yet pleasing- sensation. Good body with red fruit, old wood and spice and a long, satisfying finish.
