It says negrette but drinks like a northern Syrah. Great structure that never backs down

100% Negrette. Like a lighter bodied savory Northern Rhone Syrah with dried violets. Really interesting and I couldn't stop drinking it. Will be seeking out more from Fronton.

First fronton and certainly not my last. Gamay meets Malbec. Bright florals and red cherries but with some gentle tannins and killer acidity. For $20 retail in NYC, fantastic value, give me a case.
