The Wine

{Pronounced Cush-len} Our take on a Chateauneuf du Pape style blend, the name is a Gaelic translation of "Castle of the Pope." This Grenache-forward blend has notes of mineral, wet stone, strawberry and bay leaf on the nose. The long finish plays out notes of cherry, espresso and lingering spice.

The Winemaking

The Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre were fermented whole cluster (no destemming or crushing). All other varieties were destemmed and fermented whole berry. All wines were aged in neutral French oak (no new barrels were used).
