2010 Red Rhone Blend “The Outcome” (Eaglepoint Ranch)


From one of our favorite growers and dear friend- the legendary Casey Hartlip. He offered us some Counoise and we got a lot more than anticipated. Counoise changes the nose and midpalate- giving more spice/brightness. It is an intriguing Californian Rhone red wine. We call this wine, The Outcome.
