SAFE SHIPPING TIP: Summer weather challenging for safely shipping natural wine. We strongly prefer a business address where an adult is available to sign on the first delivery attempt which avoids our unfiltered wines riding around on a hot truck all day.

The Thirteen Series is our proprietary southern Rhone style blend using up to thirteen of the grape varietals traditional to Chateauneuf-du-Pape, here we have blended five: 47% Grenache + 21% Syrah+ 16% Mourvedre + 10% Counoise + 6% Cinsault.

Stephen Tanzer's IWC, May 2012 90pts:

Vivid red. Smoke- and spice-accented aromas of cherry, redcurrant, violet and licorice, with a hint of cracked pepper emerging with air. Spicy and focused, with a gently chewy texture to the sappy red and dark berry flavors. Shows a refreshingly bitter nuance on the finish, which features sweet red fruits and flowers. This wine is already drinking nicely.

Gamey notes dance with crushed free berries, herbs, cola, leather and floral hints. The palate shows off the wine's stuffing with chewy tannins, respectable acidity and lingering flavors of cranberry and cassis.
