Enchant Trinity 2018

Enchant TRINITY is a deeply delicious wine blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre in the style of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, an appellation in the southern Rhône wine region which produces blended wines with rich fruit flavors, intense floral aromas together with hints of herbs and spices.

Beautiful ruby hue in the glass. Deep enchanting aroma showing dark berry fruit.

In the mouth, good weight, lots of fruit but elegant and complex with perfect soft tannin. The purity of fruit is otherworldly and the textures are extraordinarily silky, elegant and sensuous.

This is a great lunchtime wine, ready to drink now but will be fine in the cellar for seven to ten years.

The 2018 season was seamless with heavenly hangtime and phenomenal phenolic development. February saw abundant rains, followed by lots of filtered light in spring and early summer. Both bud break and flowering occurred a bit late, but under ideal weather conditions, creating plentiful and even fruit set.

Summer brought generous sun during the day and cooler marine influences, virtually uninterrupted by major heat spikes. The relatively mild summer followed by extended fall sunshine and moderate heat created near-ideal conditions as the fruit developed flavor complexity, approaching maturity with gradual increases in sugar levels, reaching optimal balance of brix and pH levels at harvest.

Enchant is a classic blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre in the style of Châteauneuf-du-Pape wines. Grenache provides a jam-like sweetness with warmth and mellowness. Mourvèdre adds elegance and structure to the wine and Syrah provides both color and spice flavors.

An absolutely food friendly wine but also easily enjoyed on its own.
