Production Notes

When Hansjörg Wyss bought this historic property, he named it in honor of his mother, Alice Halter. With this reserve blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, and Tannat, we are honoring her once again with the name Cuvée Alice. Aromas of cranberry, boysenberry and a hint of spice fill the nose of this aromatic wine. The palate is vibrant, showcasing flavors of dried fruit, pomegranate, and ripe plum.

Pair with vegetarian dishes, wild game, and hearty Italian-based cuisine.
