With The Vixen, Winemakers Ian and Ryan set out to create a fun, playful and juicy wine that was less serious than The Stag, with a medium bodied, round and full palate. The Vixen is our interpretation of some of the best wines of the southern Rhone region of France, with a fruit forward and luscious California attitude. The Rhone region of France produces some of the best wines in the world. A hallmark of those wines is the use of Grenache and Syrah grapes, along with 20 other grape varietals that are permitted to be used in those blends.  Most wines from the Southern Rhone use Grenache as their primary grape, and we have followed that basic premise in creating The Vixen. But don't be fooled! All of the fruit for our new creation comes from a small growing region in the Central Coast Appellation of California, not far from Paso Robles where we ferment and age the juice to perfection. The soil, temperature, and climate of the Paso Robles region is uniquely suited to the cultivation of high quality Grenache and Syrah.

This lush, fruit-forward blend of 50% Grenache, 45% Syrah, and 5% Merlot will pair beautifully with Texas style smoked barbecue like pork spare ribs, a baked potato stuffed with brisket, or pulled pork tacos. This is a young, “drink now” bottle of wine and it does not require breathing or decanting.

We served this wine recently with your shallot & brie tarte tartin. A great start to our dinner! Perfect pairing.

High intensity aromas of fresh dark cherries with leather, tobacco, and cocoa, then on the palate, flavors that match the aromas beginning with fresh tart dark cherries and ending with a lingering cocoa finish. Nice!

By far, this is my favorite wine from Nice, and maybe ever. It's smooth and flavorful. I haven't found a food yet that it doesn't pair well with.

3.75 stars. PNP. Dark ruby color. Nose of strawberries and peppers. Taste of tart cherry, strawberry, with a trace of clove and leather. Smooth and bright acidity balance nicely.
