Quick Overview

Le Rival comes from their top 10-acre parcel and is a completely different wine in terms of richness, fullness and intensity. Opaque ruby/purple, with notes of black cherry jam as well as creme de cassis, licorice and subtle smoke, this wine is impressively endowed, full-bodied, and
displays a lot more minerality and structure.
