A delicious Rhone style blend.

The classic semitransparent garnet color is lovely in the glass. Sweet morello cherries intermingle with rose and Swiss milk chocolate. But the wine is not sweet, yet invitingly dry with a delicate balance of tannin and alcohol. The smoked cherry flavor provides ample acidity and the toasty oak finish is the last to remain.

The Grenache is from the Ghielmetti Vineyard.  The Syrah is from the Dante/Robere Vineyard.  The Mourvedre is from the Smith Ranch. Both the Dante Robere Vineyard and Smith Ranch vineyards are approximately 400 ft in elevation and located near Sycamore Grove park.  The Ghielmetti Vineyard is located in the eastern foothills of Livermore Valley at approximately 1000 ft elevation.

3.8 pH. .80 TA  A blend of 48% Grenache, 32% Syrah and 20% Mourvedre.
