This generous fusion of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, and Cinsaut is easily approachable while displaying undeniable complexity.  The Grenache portion of the blend contributes cranberry and raspberry candied fruit notes, while the Syrah fragment delivers darker fruits and savoury characteristics.  Mourvedre enhances the structure and richness of the body and provides delicate aromas of violets.  Our partially carbonic macerated Cinsaut brings liveliness and tropical fruit flavors to the blend.  Try pairing with a smoked salmon dish with cranberry sauce and grilled portabello. 

THE STORY
Long ago, during the 17th century, the O’Neills and O’Reillys were two revolutionary Irish families. They formed a rowing competition to reserve rights to some highly regarded land.  The two rowing teams agreed that the first to touch the land, after rowing across the lake, would become ruler of the land. O’Neill’s boat was falling behind so a member of the crew grabbed his own sword, cut off his hand and threw it ashore, winning the title to rule the land. This land still remains in the family.
