PharaohMoans 2015 Grenache will ship this fall, weather-permitting.
The 2015 PharaohMoans Grenache was harvested in mid-October and aged for 17 months in 60% new French oak barrels. The Grenache is subtle and sophisticated with gentle notes of crushed strawberries and flower petals softly coating your entire palate. This wine will continue to mature for the next 10 years in bottle.
We produced only 90 cases of PharaohMoans 2015 Grenache, which will ship this Fall. The price for the Grenache is $570 per six pack (6 x 750ml).
2015 GRENACHE, 93 POINTS
"Deep ruby. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red berries, cherry, potpourri and peppery spices, and a suggestion of incense adds an exotic twist. Stains the palate with sappy black raspberry and cherry cola flavors that are given a spicy edge by a late jolt of white pepper. Conveys a suave combination of richness and energy and closes on a spicy note, delivering impressive focus, harmonious tannins and strong persistence."

2014 GRENACHE, 94 POINTS
"A very fine-textured grenache with dried strawberries and spices. Medium-bodied, polished and sexy. Delightful wine. Only 85 cases made."
- James Suckling, December 2016
2014 GRENACHE, 94 POINTS
"The 2014 Grenache is a beautiful, ripe and full-bodied wine that has the standard seamless texture that's the hallmark of all of winemaker Guillaume Fabre's wines. Made from 100% Grenache that saw just a touch of whole cluster and 18 months in neutral oak, this beauty's vibrant purple color is followed by notes of kirsch, blackberries, ground herbs, graphite and toasted spice. These give way to a sexy, polished Grenache that has terrific concentration, impressive purity of fruit and ripe, sweet tannin. It's already hard to resist, and I see no need to hold off either."

2012 GRENACHE, 92 POINTS
"Aged 17 months in neutral barrels, the 2012 Grenache exhibits pretty notes of camphor, kirsch, dried cherries and balsam to go with a full-bodied, supple, sexy and forward style on the palate that's about as easy drinking as they come. Drink this total charmer over the coming 5-7 years."

2012 GRENACHE, 90 POINTS
"Pure, ripe and refreshing, with graceful, snappy raspberry, black cherry and black licorice flavors, ending with touches of dried herb and anise. Drink now through 2024."
- James Laube, Wine Spectator, December 2014
As you are aware, the PharaohMoans label is a replica of the Rosetta Stone, which in 1822 finally decoded the hieroglyphic script. The dull text (which refers to tax breaks for priests) was inscribed in three languages, Greek, demotic Egyptian and hieroglyphics. We've just learned about a recent discovery at the British Museum of a fourth language on the Rosetta stone. The relic was fought over by French and British troops at the end of the Napoleonic wars, and finally taken to London. On the side of the stone, painted in English, one can read, "Captured in Egypt by the British Army in 1801." We think our English label inspired them to check!
We hope you will enjoy this world class rhone-style wine. Nunc Est Bibendum! ("Now we drink!")
