TASTING NOTES

This wine is a blend of four wines, each produced using the traditional Rhône process of 'Pigeage' where all of the grapes are crushed by foot, not by machine. Each wine ferments separately, and when complete, we drain and press the tank, rack the new wine to used 60-gallon French oak barrels, then let the wine age on the lees for a year before blending. We then bottle, unfined and unfiltered.

The finished wine is complex and old-worldly. There's earth and mineral along with some wildly exotic fruit and an attractive soft finish. We've regularly heard it referred to as the best example of an old-world blend made today in California. We think it's at least that. A blend of 45% Carignan (vines are 140 years-old), 25% Grenache, 15% Mourvèdre and 15% Syrah.

Just bought a case of this, had the first bottle last night. Really quite nice, offers some red fruit notes but the hero is the various spice components and a touch of pepper on the back end. Balanced and nicely blended; anxious to see how a bit of age will add to it, though I bought it to take a spot in the weekly rotation of consumables with dinner.
