The La Clarine Farm Funky Drummer is a classic blend with a twist: Syrah, Grenche and Counois co-mingling to produce a whole greater than its parts.
This wine just grooves. The Syrah and Grenache offer up a comfortable and familiar vibe. The Syrah provides the structure, as would the bass drum, and the Grenache is all high-toned high-hat goodness. But the Counouse is the kicker, the "ghost notes," if you will that flits in and out of the flavor profile to add a little acid sparkle, or a little herbal kick. It's magic.
