The Viceroy is a showcase for the artisanal skills of our winemaker. CRU GSM takes its inspiration from the Rhone Valley of southern France where Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre are some of the most popular grape types grown. Each of the three grape types blended into this wine adds distinctive aromas and flavors. Grenache contributes raspberry, blackberry, and cherry flavors, while Syrah lends color, tannins, and hints of blueberry and black pepper. The Mourvèdre adds richness to the mid-palate and lengthens the dry finish. The final blend is aged 16 months in 20% new French oak barrels and is truly a staff favorite.
