The wine is a blend of four wines, each produced using the traditional Rhône process of 'Pigeage' where all of the grapes are crushed by foot, not by machine. Each wine ferments separately, and when complete we drain and press the tank, rack the new wine to used 60-gallon French oak barrels, then let the wine age on the lees for a year before blending. We then bottle, unfined and unfiltered. The finished wine is complex and old-worldly. There's earth and mineral along with some wildly exotic fruit, and an attractive soft finish. We've regularly heard it referred to as the best example of an old-world blend made today in California. We think it's at least that. A blend of 45% Carignan (vines are 140 years-old), 25% Grenache, 15% Mourvèdre and 15% Syrah.

Wine EnthusiastMedium bodied and lean in profile, this wine starts with floral aromas, then brings in fairly tart cherry and pomegranate flavors and firmly tannic texture.
