This 2020 vintage is a blend of 45% Mourvedre, 25% Syrah, 25% Grenache, and 5% Counoise. The year 2020 was difficult because of all of the fires near the Sierra Nevada’s which caused a great deal of smoke taint in a couple lots of the fruit we received. But the lots that did not get damaged by smoke turned out above average, so we decided to reintroduce this favorite back to our line up! All the lots of fruit were fermented separately with about 40 days of extended maceration in the fermentation vessel to integrate the tannin to give this wine a nicely structured but smooth finish. Our take on this French-style Rhone blend shows a good amount of cherry, baking spice, chocolate and peppery aromatics. This wine maintains enough acidity to keep the aromatics and mouthfeel bright and lively. Perfect to enjoy with grilled chicken or BBQ’ed pork dishes.
