Milestone is a full-bodied luscious Rhone blend of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre. Rich blackberry, cherry, and plum framed in smokey toasted vanilla oak with hints of black pepper. Like C&C, it pairs well with savory dishes, pastas, seasoned meat, and chocolate desserts.
“There’s a strong smoky core to the nose of this blend of 65% Syrah, 25% Grenache and 10% Mourvèdre by the founders of Dark Star Cellars, alongside aromas of roasted boysenberry, pie crust and cassis. The palate is focused on purple fruit and flowers, delivering acia, black-currant and violet flavors into an acid-washed finish.” –91 Points, Wine Enthusiast
