BLACK CHERRY, CHOCOLATE-COVERED FIG, ROSEWATER & ROSEMARY This unusually Mourvèdre-driven cuvée is quite iconoclastic, and quietly iconic. Mourvèdre enjoys a lofty reputation among growers throughout Mediterranean France for the character and intensity that it brings, but it also has earned the reputation of being a sluggish ripener and, thus, a liability in cooler years. Saint-Anne’s fame is partially anchored to the estate’s affinity for it, ripening it to perfection and trusting it to headline this broad-shouldered, exquisitely exotic red. Serving Suggestion: Lamb chops w/ black pepper, cumin, coriander, cinnamon, & fennel. Flatbread w/ feta, black olives, spinach, & roasted garlic.
