The grapes are sourced from small parcels of younger vines (20 years of age as of 2011)
on the flanks of a hill that descends towards the Garonne River in the village of Sainte Croix du Mont.
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (80%) and Merlot (20%),
Aromas and palate of strawberries and raspberries, the red fruit mingles with prominent flavors
of grapefruit, white peach and yogurt. The fruit is balanced by bracing acidity
that accentuates the fruit but the tannin keeps everything in balance.

La Rame is French but don't forget "Aperitivi"
