2015 MaBelle - Covington Cellars
Our proprietor Cindy calls this her wine. A devout lover of Southern Rhone blends, Cindy wanted to make a wine like this since our inception in 2002. It wasn’t until 2007 however that Covington Cellars had access to the Cinsault varietal. Sitting at the blending table with Morgan and David, Cindy named the wine “Ma Belle”, meaning my beautiful in French, and it’s been on the production schedule ever since. A single vineyard bottling, this Grenache dominate blend has a dedicated following among our wine club members. The 2015 bottling is a beauty, at 75% Grenache, rounded out by 10% each Mourvedre and Syrah, with 5% Cinsault. This wine offers up a palate coating mixture of ripe red fruits and floral notes.
