Winemaker Notes

The 2016 Marrenon Ventoux Orca Vieilles Vignes opens with a mature nose of mild tobacco. In the mouth, a rich attack of ripe fruits, livened up by little fresh fruits liquor (blackcurrant/raspberry ) aromas. The melting oak tannins come all along with the wine in mouth. Fresh, complex (garrigue, coffee-roasting) and with a very long finish.

This powerful wine has a nice ageing potential. Pair it with duck breast, roasted shoulder of lamb or stewed game. To put in decanter 3 hours before tasting.

James Suckling

Impressive red fruit builds into deeper blackberry aromas, rich and vibrant with suave, stony background allure. The palate is silky and packed with rich dark-berry flavor. Fluid, succulent finish.

Though they originated from France’s southern Rhône Valley, with some creative interpretation, Rhône blends have also become popular in other countries. Somm Secret—Putting their own local spin on the Rhône Red Blend, those from Priorat often include Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In California, it is not uncommon to see Petite Sirah make an appearance.
