Mostly Montepulciano. After tasting MANY bottles of Rosé, I tell you with confidence that Montepulciano is a grape that truly lends itself to Rosé.
Brett says: "Like a blend of Tuscany, and Bandol."

Cotes du Rhone from the legendary Rhone house of Saint Cosmes.
All grenache done in a baby cement solera.
Winemaker Says: "In the same mold, the Little Basket Press (all Grenache) offers good pepper, spice and herbs in a medium-bodied, easy drinking package.
It's a solid, bistro-styled red to drink over the coming couple of years."
James Suckling Says 90 Points: "Pure grenache and made as a solera that has been alive for twenty years with half of the new harvest being exchanged into the solera each year. The final blend is 50% solera wine and 50% wine of the new vintage.
The richness is really something. Such deep-set grenache red and dark berries,
as well as riper, raisiny notes. Long, smooth and deep. Drink now."
