ISENHOWER CELLARS Red Wine 'Rara Avis' 2014

The 2014 Isenhower Cellars 'Rara Avis,' or 'rare bird' in Latin, is a blend of 68% Grenache, 26% Mourvedre and 6% Syrah which was wild yeast fermented. This opens with a nice smoky aromatic profile with creosote, smoked brisket, red cherry and crushed wildflowers. This leads to dense flavors of red cherry, red raspberry, smoked meat and hints of white pepper with roses. The balance and richness continues to bring you back to the glass.
