Premiere Sneak Peek Zoom Pack
Premiere Pre-Release - 1 bottle each of 2019 Cinsault, 2019 Negrette, 2018 Mourvedre
Zoom Date: January 28, at 4 pm PST
2019 Cinsault - 100% Cinsault, 125 cases produced: 94pts, Vinous
Deep, glistening garnet. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh red fruits, exotic spices and candied lavender, and a minerally nuance builds in the glass. Energetic raspberry, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors show impressive depth as well as energy thanks to a spine of juicy acidity. Finishes youthfully taut and impressively long, with building sweetness and pliant tannins that fold smoothly into the sappy fruit. - JR Vinous
2019 Negrette - 100% Negrette, 100 cases produced: 91pts, Vinous
Bright violet. Lively, spice-accented dark berry and cherry aromas take on succulent herb and licorice nuances as the wine opens up. Juicy, penetrating and seamless in texture, it offers bitter cherry and cassis flavors and a touch of dark chocolate. Closes spicy and taut, with subtle tannins and an appealing sense of jamminess. Made with 100% whole clusters and all neutral French oak. - JR Vinous
2018 Mourvedre - 100% Mourvedre, 100 cases produced
The aromatics are classic Mourvèdre funk: alpine, forest floor, farm air, with a streak of bright red fruit (pomegranate, red berry), pepper, and some backseat oak notes of baking spice and cinnamon. The palate is savory and salty, earthy. The fruit is softer in the mouth, almost strawberry, and the tannins are polished and fine.
