This classic Rhone Blend is comprised of 20% Grenache from the famed Arroyo Seco appellation, 40% Syrah from Cattich’s Russian River Valley hillside, and 40% Old Vine Mourvèdre from San Francisco Bay’s Sandy Lane Vineyard. A lushly complex wine boasting mysteriously dark fruit characteristics seeped in complex layers of earth, leather and figs. The mid-palate is richly textured with black pepper and plums, finishing long, with a weighty plushness. The aromatics are feisty with lots of fresh country-side notes, and a tinge of gurgly black strike- it- rich oil. Pair with lentils with wild rice and shiitake mushrooms, beef short ribs, pork shoulder, barbecue chicken, and Bratwurst sausage.
