Washington wineThe mistral is a strong winter wind that howls through the Rhône Valley of France. This red blend is inspired by the region, as it comprises Grenache (67%), Mourvédrè (22%) and Syrah from two top Red Mountain vineyards: Ciel du Cheval and Read Heaven. This opens with aromas of wintergreen, pie cherry, cinnamon and vanilla, followed by a delicious palate that shows off flavors of sage, black licorice, boysenberry and lime zest. Its rich, plush texture includes chocolatey tannins and plum notes on the finish.
