2013 Joie de Vivre

« Back to Shop

The 2013 Joie de Vivre is an elegant representation of a Rhone Style Blend. Its predecessors (the 2010 and 2012 Joie de Vivre) contain a larger portion of Syrah, and thus, offer a dominance of blackberry and plum. Still supported by this dark fruit note, this 2013 provides a nuanced interest of white pepper, bouquet garni, and a subtle orange peel and vanilla combo reminiscent of an Orange Julius. Juicy from start to finish, this wine is a masterpiece of easy drinking as well as an exceptional food wine.
