Cochon 2016 Pape Rocks GSMC Red Blend
Pape Rocks for adults! Grenache sourced from rock strewn vineyards forms the core of this Chateauneuf du Pape inspired red blend from Cochon Wines. 15% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre and 5% Cinsault make up the rest of the blend. Brillant ruby-purple color with intense aromas of intense wild raspberry, ripe Bing cherry, stone fruits, with hints of crushed rocks, smoked Provencal herbs, white pepper and savory spice. Bright acid, ripe and velvety textured, displaying layers of fruit and glycerol concentration that are both seductive, with intensity while maintaining a balanced elegance. The opulent flavors and spice persist on the palate finishing supple with silky tannins and an undeniable minerality.
