A beautiful wine inspired by a wonderfully romantic play.

“I always loved the play Cyrano de Bergerac. I even developed a crush on Roxane, which is why I jumped at the chance to play the role of Cyrano in my high school play. After delivering the last line of dialogue: ‘My white plume!’ the audience fell silent. I have no idea whether it was because I was very good or very bad. (I’d like to believe very good!) To this day, I still think it’s a wonderfully romantic play, perfect for two beautiful wines.”

Wine Notes

We use very little new oak with this wine so as not to overpower the aromas and flavors with too much wood. The fruit is picked in the early morning, cold soaked, and fermented cool to retain the varietal’s natural acidity. 2018 experienced a traditional season where plenty of spring rain was followed by warm temperatures in June, resulting in a plentiful, well-balanced crop.

Cyrano’s French background inspired our use of Grenache, a French varietal. Over the years, we’ve used Grenache in a number of our red blends, all while contemplating a way to get our hands on enough to create a single-varietal expression of a dramatic red grape that enchants us with its unique combination of red fruits, peppery spice character, and herbal “garrigue” notes. Eventually, we found a vineyard that produces exquisite Grenache, inspiring the creation of this poetic wine.

Enjoy the Scents and Flavors

Boating a deep garnet color, the 2018 Cyrano is light bodied and refreshing. Aromas of cranberry and baking spices dance on the nose, following through on the palate, and joined by flavors of cherry liqueur, orange citrus rind, and red berries. Smooth and velvety on the finish, and well balanced, this is a romantic wine befitting of its name.
