Reserve Rhone Blend: 62% Syrah, 25% Mourvedre, 13% Grenache. This wine is polished and supple with a beam of raspberry and pomegranate fruit teasing the senses. Intense yet harmonious, the El Jefé yields a dark succulence to the palate in the form of cassis, plum and a hint of biodynamic loam. All of this juicy concentration carries nicely into the tannin-laced finish.
