Tasting Notes:

Grenache, Syrah & Mourvedre are the foremost varieties in the 2012 vintage of Higher Ground.  This sophisticated bottle expresses gorgeous notes of ripe red raspberry and tart Bing cherry, with allspice and pink peppercorn adding depth to the complexity.  The texture of the wine is silky, with firm tannins and finely integrated acidity.  Drink now through 2019.
