77% Grenache, 15% Mourvèdre & 8% Syrah

Pre-Release at Winery Only

Grenache’s savory plum and black cherry flavors, coupled with Mourvèdre’s smoky gaminess, and Syrah’s powerful punch and richness. This is a dead ringer for a top Southern Rhône, say a Châteauneuf-du-Pape or Gigondas.

The Grenache for this wine is planted at 2,500 feet near the town of Georgetown. Its Boomer series red, decomposed granite soils are what Grenache likes to grow in and the budwood is from Chateau Rayas, Beaucastel, and Remelluri in Rioja. The Mourvèdre is from one of our Fiddletown site at 2000 feet. The Syrah is from the Monarch Mine Vineyard at 2500 feet near Auburn.
