Peter Franus Red Hills Red
This is classical Rhône blend. Its dark ruby and youthful color is classic. A kaleidoscope of aromas presents itself—clove, smoked ham, and the pepper of Syrah, but the lavender and floral notes of Grenache and Mourvèdre soon warrant attention. The bright lively structure with its blueberry and anise flavors is impeccable, and the wine finishes with a dash of black pepper and great length. Although certainly accessible, this wine will hold together for many years. As the vineyard continues to mature, we can find that the resulting wines have become more vibrant and accessible in recent years.
