2016 EQUIS "EQUINOXE" CROZE HERMITAGE
From the hillsides of Crozes-Hermitage in the Northern Rhone, this dark-fruited, peppery red is made from all hand-harvested fruit from younger vines. The wine was fermented and aged in concrete tank and large wooden vats to allow the purity of the fruit and distinctive minerality of the terroir shine through. It’s an elegant, earthy red and makes a perfect pairing with a roast chicken or duck.
90 points Wine Advocate: "The forward, fruity and straight-up delicious 2015 Crozes Hermitage Equinoxe offers a forward, medium+ bodied style, as well as sweet, light tannin, lots of plum and strawberry fruits, solid mid-palate depth and no hard edges. It's ideal for drinking in its first 7-8 years of life. It should be a killer Northern Rhône introduction." (2015 vintage, JD, 12/2016)
