Notes from the Winemaker:
Scents of cinnamon bark, graphite, white pepper and cocoa dust hang in the air of the warmly lit room as you enter. A glass of framboise and cedar bowls filled with green olives and wild strawberries are set out. Though the day was long & arduous a smile spreads on your lips as you see the anxious little faces before you. “Shall we begin where we left off?” you ask, settling into a soft suede armchair with the storybook.

Ratings & Reviews



90 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"Based on 39% Grenache, 36% Syrah, and 25% Mourvèdre, the 2018 Offering sports a deep ruby color as well as lots of pretty blackberry, blueberry, peppery herbs, and subtle meaty aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, with plenty of fruit, good acidity, and a clean finish, this solid Rhône-like blend will keep for 4-6 years."

94 Points & #20 Top 100 Wines of 2019 - Wine Spectator (2016 Vintage):
"Distinctive, refined and well-built, offering expressive black cherry, cigar box, green olive and cured meat accents that build richness on the long finish. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Viognier. Drink now through 2026. 2,450 cases made. —TF
