A delicious if unusual blend of 20% each Cab Franc, Merlot, Arinarnoa, Petit Verdot, Carménère. This winery is from the Rhone so you might wonder what some of these grapes -- Merlot? -- are doing in this blend. The answer is that this unique winery is located on an island in the river. The cooling influence of the flowing water allow for these grapes. The result is an incredible value in juicy, sunny red wine!
