California Red Blend: Syrah, Grenache and Mouvedre from the Sierra Foothills
This wine drinks like wines from solid Côtes-du-Rhône-Villages vintage: sappy, spicy, mouth-filling, and nuanced. It is an eminently enjoyable everyday bottle. This 2013 has deep boysenberry fruit aromatics, with smoky/meaty/gamey complex flavor components that emphasize our terroir, and a lengthy creamy texture. Aged for 16 months in a mixture of French barrels. This is a great California wine value!
