THE STORY BEHIND THE LABEL: 

Long ago, pre-dating the 11th century, the families that became modern day O’Neills and O’Reillys were feuding over the land that became their ancestral home. To settle the dispute, a competition was organized and several 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, and touching first, winning the title to rule the land.  The island fortress on this land can still be visited on Lough Oughter in County Cavan.

TASTING NOTES:

This young Grenache heavy blend erupts with perfumed aromas of bright raspberry and herbal tea while the MourveĢ€dre brings a savory note to the nose. The palate is plush and textural with the perfect amount of tannins, acidity, and an upbeat, bright, fruity finish that brings this wine together.
