2016 Rare Earth
Sold Out

Like the Rare Earth elements, this wine is a rare find! A blend of 66% Petite Sirah and 34% Viognier creating a harmonious marriage between a big red wine and a big mouthy white wine. This exciting blend is medium Garnet in color with a big cherry nose that would make Rudolf jealous. Aromas of cherry, caramel and coconut. Flavors of sugar plum and a palate showing balanced acid and subdued tannins are the result of this varietal marriage.

The quality of the blend is excellent. The Viognier especially helps this wine form a soft / supple flavor profile. We found the longevity of the flavors (tannins, fruit, acid) to significantly wane once the wine was poured into a glass and exposed to oxygen. It became less dimensional on the palette. Suggest pouring, drinking and enjoying in the moment.

We bought a bottle / took it home / opened it. Made some light Fettuccini with vegetables and a little Italian Sausage. The wine was both over-powered, then faded into bleakness. We think the Viognier was a good bland but maybe too much of it. We poured half the bottle out.
