VINIFICATION

The components of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvèdre were fermented in small open-top bins, concrete, and stainless steel tanks with 15% new oak and 10% whole clusters included. The wine spent 20-35 days on the skins with a combination of pump-overs and punch-downs during fermentation. Aged 18 months in a combination of 265-liter, once and twice-filled barriques, and 500-liter neutral French oak puncheons.

TASTING NOTES

Marionberry, dark leather, smoked plums, blueberry/peach cobbler, acacia flower, lavender creme brûlée, red-eye gravy, violet, ripe olive, hoisin, currant paste, and melted licorice. Broad, weighty, and plush on the palate with a densely packed finish.

Varietals: 58% Syrah, 20% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre, 6% Zinfandel, 3% Petite Sirah, 3% Graciano

Ratings & Reviews


94 Points - Wine Enthusiast:

Hearty aromas of roasted and charred fruit meet with caramel, baking spice and violet on the nose of this blend of 58% Syrah, 20% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre, 6% ZInfandel, 3% Petite Sirah and 3% Graciano. Warm maple and brown-sugar flavors show on the palate, where that dark roasted-fruit flavor picks up cappuccino spice. — Matt Kettmann

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
The 2021 Beautiful Earth Red is a blend of 58% Syrah, 20% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre, 6% Zinfandel, 3% Petite Sirah and 3% Graciano. It has a nose of baked plums, maraschino cherries, salami, mint chocolate and sage. The full-bodied palate is bursting with concentrated fruit. It has a supple, approachable frame, juicy acidity and a long, spicy finish. It deserves 2-3 years in bottle to unwind. 2025-2035.

93 Points - Wine Spectator:
Spirited and gutsy, with fruit and personality, offering multilayered blackberry, raspberry, licorice and espresso flavors that finish with a smoky meat accent. Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Graciano. Drink now through 2031. 1,776 cases made.

93 Points - Vinous:
The 2021 Red Beautiful Earth stains the glass with its inky dark red and purple hues. This is savory and seductive on the nose, with rich brown spice and grilled herbs accentuating briary wild berries. Silky and seamless on the palate, this impresses with its undeniable elegance and refinement with crisp mineral-laced black fruits and spice. This leaves the palate stained in blue and purple liquid florals and dusty tannins, with a bit of a bitter twang that punctures the experience quite nicely. The Red Beautiful Earth is a blend of 58% Syrah, 20% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre, 6% Zinfandel, 3% Petite Sirah and 3% Graciano. (Drink between 2024-2031)


94 Points, #16 Top 100 of 2022 - Wine Spectator (2020 vintage):
"Supple, rich and plump with personality, this blend has an array of black raspberry, smoked meat, cracked pepper and and black olive flavors that race toward the zesty finish. Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Petite Sirah and Zinfandel. Drink now through 2030. 1,474 cases made." —TF
