Kevin LePrince Series

We teamed up with the very talented Artist Kevin LePrince. He painted the labels for us and Bjoern Lanwer blended the wines. These are the first two wines:

2012 LePrince Cotes du Rhone Vieilles Vignes

LePrince Front Label

“A custom blend by importer Bjoern Lanwer and a fleshy, ripe and beautifully pure barrel sample, the 2012 Cotes du Rhone Vieilles Vignes (54% Grenache, 34% Syrah, 9% Mourvedre and the balance Cinsault, aged almost all in tank) offers up plenty of ripe plum, black raspberry, wild herbs and violets to go with a medium-bodied, supple and nicely fruited profile on the palate. Possessing solid purity, good overall freshness and a very drinkable feel, it should be consumed over the coming 4-5 years. Drink 2014-2019.”       89-91 Robert Parker – Issue 209

2013 Leap of Faith Cotes du Roussillon Villages

Front Label Leap of Faith

“A beautiful barrel sample that shows the quality of the vintage, the 2013 Cotes du Roussillon Villages Leap of Faith is a custom blend by importer Bjoern Lanwer and is comprised of Grenache, Carignan and Syrah that had 20% of the blend aged in oak. Coming from clay and limestone soils, it possesses a semi-opaque purple color to go with vibrant aromas and flavors of black raspberry, mulberry, violets, toasted spice and dusty earth. Medium-bodied on the palate, with a seamless, elegant profile that gains richness and depth in the glass, this beauty has integrated acidity, fine tannin and a terrific finish. It should be approachable on release, yet evolve nicely for 5-6 years. It should end up being a superb value and well worth checking out.” 89-91 Robert Parker – Issue 212
