About This Wine:
The Cave in Vinsobres is a cooperative winery. Vinsobres is located at the top of a mountain and provides south-facing slopes at higher altitudes that allow production of high-quality grapes. Because of this terrain and its reputation for quality, Vinsobres is the first village in the Drôme to receive a Cru designation for its wines. This is the highest designation available for villages in the region and requires the producers to restrict the numbers of acres of production to maintain quality. While wines from Vinsobres are available throughout Europe, the Cave's wines have never been exported to the U.S. Pascal Monier, Director of the Cave, is the second generation of his family to run it -- he took over from his father and has been the driving force behind the AOC's awarding of cru status to Vinsobres. Thérapius is 100% Syrah, and for Syrah lovers, this wine has it all -- the full-bodied dark fruits, the pepperiness, the hints of tobacco. The village had to get permission to make a wine that's 100% Syrah for its cru selections, and this one's a keeper. Truly a spectactular wine. Come on -- it comes in a wooden box, so you know it's great, right?
