2016 Baril

The 2016 Le Gras Baril is a blend of 60% Merlot, 23% Petit Verdot, and 17% Tannat. A sophisticated but approachable red wine, the 2016 Le Gras Baril shows notes of thyme, sage, raspberry, and a hint of pepper on the nose. The palate has a graphite minerality. Hints of chery, herb, and smoke sustain throughout with present but subtle tannin. Pair with grilled pork tenderloin, rack of lamb, or ribs.

 

Named “Bearded” after Oliver Gras. Oliver was the Baron of Courtstown. He was an adherent of the cause of Lancaster in the Wars of the Roses (1455-1487), a conflict between cousins over who would be King of England. In 1470, Oliver was made superintendent of County Kilkenny in Ireland. He married Ellen, daughter of Anthony O’More, Prince of the territory of Leix. Best known for his dauntless spirit and inflexible justice, he gained the admiration and attachment of the native Irish. They lovingly called him “my Feasig” (the Bearded). Oliver tragically drowned in the lake near the family’s Inchmore Castle.
