2016 “All Blocks” Estate Blend (94 Wine Spectator; 89-92 Jeb Dunnuck; 90-92 Vinous)
This is only the second vintage of this very special wine that represents a long-time dream come true for us – a blend made entirely from our own vineyards. This wine is a blend of Syrah and Mourvedre from our Tensley Estate Vineyard as well as Grenache and Syrah from Colson Canyon Vineyard, which we recently purchased. The blend is 85% Grenache, 14% Syrah, and 1% Mourvedre. This wine is bold and beautifully balanced, showing the best each vineyard has to offer. From Colson Canyon come the deep, dark berry notes, chocolate, and lush mouthfeel while the Tensley Vineyard brings in savory, earthy notes and deep, dark notes of purple plums. This wine is approachable now but will also age well over the next 8 to 10 years.
