2014 Syrah < Six Rats >

2017 AOC Côtes du Rhône
2017 AOC Vacqueyras Blanc
40% Viognier, 30% Marsanne & 30% Grenache Blanc
Certified Organic; grown on a sandstone terroire. Fermented and aged in stainless steel, the fruity and fresh character of the Viognier and the Marsanne is balanced by the soft body provided by the Grenache Blanc.
A versatile wine that compliments with white fish in creamy sauce; white meat; roast chicken; pasta with gorgonzola; seafood with curry; crab cakes; and Cajun food.
"The nose on this full-bodied blend of Grenache Blanc, Marsanne and Viognier is initially quite smoky and earthy. Aeration and time tease out aromas of crisp pineapple and lemon accented by hints of cashew. Vinified entirely in stainless steel, it offers ripe but pristine white-peach and apple flavors balanced by a salty minerality. Enjoy now–2021." Anna Lee C. Lijima
