Counoise is one of the thirteen sanctioned varieties used in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and is most commonly used as a blending grape to add complexity and focus. We at Alexandria Nicole Cellars feel that this grape thrives on its own when able to reach peak ripeness. This ripeness is precisely what our Estate Destiny Ridge Vineyard provides. Bright ruby in color, this wine shows lively aromatics of Bing cherry, raspberry, cranberry, and rose petal complemented by a touch of spice. On the palate, fruity notes of strawberry, cherry, and plum are backed by an intriguing hint of anise and finishes with medium acidity and a lush tannin profile. Pair this wine with grilled or roasted meats, or with a fresh tuna Nicoise salad.
