Tasting Note The 2019 Mixed Blacks could be one of our most expressive vintages to date. Hints of blueberry, pomegranate and raspberry mingle in the glass. The wine carries a full-bodied flavor, which coats the palate with rustic mulberry and sweet black licorice.
Grape variety 55% Grenache, 24% Syrah , 15% Petite Sirah, 4% Mourvedre, 2% Viognier.
For some time now, we have shared a love of Rhone Valley blends and their domestic counterparts. We wanted to experiment with some completely different varietals by putting our California twist on the beautiful interplay between the bright fruit and mineral characteristics of these blends while still maintaining the rich, fruit focused, layered lusciousness we enjoy. We are fortunate to be working with fruit from the exceptional Shake Ridge Vineyard in Amador County. It is a fantastically well-managed site with a diverse soil composition, producing a wine with an incredible flavor profile and depth.
Ageing 18 months in 65% new French oak. Bottled unfiltered and unfined.
