One night…we were listening to Pink Martini and having a wonderful time sipping another Southern Rhône blend from our stash when we knew just the right balance of Grenache and Syrah (oh…and how about some Mourvèdre!) was in our future. Here it is for you to enjoy too…and spinning a disk of Pink Martini is a must…
65% Grenache (Stone Tree Vineyard)
32% Syrah (19% Stillwater Creek Vineyard,
13% Stone Tree Vineyard)
3% Mourvedre (Kiona Heart of the Hill Vineyard)
Bottled on 6/27/09; only 60 cases were produced. The Grenache for this blend was aged for 21 months in Meuller stainless barrels and the Syrah in 18% new Tonnellerie Vernou French oak with the balance in seasoned French and American oak from Saury, Alain Fouquet, Keystone and Vicard.
