Flavors of black cherry, vanilla bean and white pepper are balanced with acidity and smooth tannins. Pairs well with spicy sausage and pasta. Aged 22 months in neutral oak barrels.
90 points- "Rich and boisterous, the 2011 Elemental is a big, mouth filling wine. Dark red cherry, plum, spice and leather meld together in a supple, juicy Rhône blend to drink now and over the next few years. The 2011 is bold, forward and impeccably balanced." Antonio Galloni
