L’Ange Rouge, meaning “The Red Angel,” is dedicated to Mac’s grandmother who fittingly had a full head of red hair. This blend is meant to showcase the femininity of Grenache. Alta Mesa Grenache, blended with Grenache from Larner Vineyard showcases the depth of this varietal. MourveĢ€dre from Alta Mesa provides the balance.
