Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2018 Recon Red is our interpretation of a typical Rhone red blend such as a Chateauneuf du Pape. Composed of 54% Grenache, 20% Syrah Noir, 13% Petite Sirah and 8% Mourvedre, the wine shows big aromas of fresh strawberries with subtle notes of green herbs. Medium-bodied on the palate with red fruits and savory umami flavors. The wine finishes with lingering red fruits and firm tannins. Aged 18 months in French and American oak.

I got the chance to try your wine today at the Marine Recon reunion today! What an amazing wine! I am really curious to know more about your Vineyard and am a local San Diego Sommelier guy, and would love to connect.
