Notes "Tried, true, and your go to. Our most popular wine from the wild side of the woods. It is energetic, thirst quenching and shows the full spectrum of Mourvèdre from blood orange to roasted game. Too much around the house is never quite enough. This is your portal to the astral plane - break on through!" - Hardy Wallace
