SYRAH, GRENACHE, VIOGNIER, ETC

Syrah: Syrah (also known as Shiraz) is a dark-skinned grape variety grown throughout the world and used primarily to produce red wine. DNA profiling in 1999 found Syrah to be the offspring of two obscure grapes from southeastern France, Dureze and Monduse Blanche. Syrah should not be confused with Petite Sirah. The style and flavor profile of wines made from Syrah is influenced by the climate where the grapes are grown, with moderate climates (such as the northern Rhone Valley and parts of the Walla Walla AVA in Washington State) tending to produce medium to full-bodied wines with medium-plus to high levels of tannins and flavors of blackberry, mint and black pepper notes. In hot climates (such as the Barossa Valley of Australia and Paso Robles AVA of California), Syrah is more consistently full-bodied with softer tannin, jammier fruit and spice notes of licorice, anise and earthy leather. In many regions the acidity and tannin levels of Syrah allow the wines produced from the grape to have favorable aging potential.

Grenache: Grenache is one of the most widely planted red wine grape varieties in the world. It ripens late, so it needs hot, dry conditions such as those found in Spain, where the grape most likely originated. It is also grown in Sardina, the south of France, Australia, and California. It is generally spicy, berry-flavored and soft on the palate and produces wine with a relatively high alcohol content, but it needs careful control of yields for best results. Characteristic flavor profiles on Grenache include red fruit flavors (raspberry and strawberry) with a subtle, white pepper spice note. Grenache wines are highly prone to oxidation with even young examples having the potential to show browning (or "bricking") coloration that can be noticed around the rim when evaluating the wine at an angle in the glass. As Grenache ages the wines tend to take on more leather and tar flavors. Wines made from Grenache tend to lack acid, tannin, and color, and it is often blended with other varieties such as Syrah, Mourvedre, Tempranillo, and Cinsaut.

Viognier: Viognier (pronounced vee-oh-nyay) is a white wine grape variety. It is the only permitted grape for the French wine Condrieu in the Rhone Valley. Outside of the Rhône, Viognier can be found in regions of North and South America as well as Australia and New Zealand. In some wine regions, the variety is co-fermented with the red wine grape Syrah where it can contribute to the color and bouquet of the wine. Like Chardonnay, Viognier has the potential to produce full-bodied wines with a lush, soft character. In contrast to Chardonnay, the Viognier varietal has more natural aromatics that include notes of peach, pears, violets and minerality. However, these aromatic notes can be easily destroyed by too much exposure to oxygen which makes barrel fermentation a winemaking technique that requires a high level of skill on the part of any winemaker working with this variety. The potential quality of Viognier is also highly dependent on viticultural practices and climate with the grape requiring a long, warm growing season in order to fully ripen but not a climate that is too hot to where the grape develops high levels of sugars and potential alcohol before its aromatic notes can develop. The grape is naturally a low-yielding variety which can make it a less economically viable planting for some vineyards.

    Inspired by the succulent pink wines of Provence, Adelaida's current release can correctly be called a "purpose made" Rose. Utilizing six red Rhone varieties, grapes were picked at the beginning of the ripening cycle to enhance the natural acidity. Expressing a mouth-watering, tangy liveliness, its moderate alcohol makes an ideal match for a wide variety of dishes or pure pleasure on its own.

    A blend of 51% Grenache, 24% Carignan, 14% Cinsaut, 5% Mourvedre, 4% Counoise, and 2% Syrah, this rose is pale as salmon skin, with brisk flavors of rose hips, hibiscus, grapefruit zest, and early season strawberries.

    Item #: 211270

    This wine floored us from the very first sip! Ancient Peaks sits in the Paso Robles appellation, 22 miles south of the city itself, and just 14 miles from the Pacific Ocean. Here, the surrounding peaks of the Santa Lucia Mountain Range act as a gateway between one region to the south that is exceedingly ocean-cooled, and another to the north that is much, much warmer (sometimes downright hot!). When the days heat up in the areas north and east of Margarita Vineyard, the air rises to create a vacuum that pulls marine breezes and fog inland over the peaks, and right through the vineyard. This means the fruit gets ripe, without any "off" flavors, yet the cooling afternoon breezes help the resulting wine to retain freshness and acidity.

    The Renegade is a blend of 80% Syrah, 18% Malbec, and 2% Petit Verdot, and the wine offers concentrated red and black fruit aromas with suggestions of cedar, smoked bacon and high-toned oak. The palate is prodigious and intense, packed with velvety layers of boysenberry, black cherry, blueberry and cranberry, with trailing hints of vanilla, caramel, coffee and black pepper. The fruit extends lavishly into the finish, braced by fine, integrated tannins and juicy acidity.

    The focus of this two person operation is on small lot, single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Chardonnay, as well as several other varieties uncommon in Northern Californian vineyards. Sites are carefully chosen and are generally on the cooler end of the spectrum for the planted varieties. Collaboration with dedicated and passionate growers is paramount in the farming of these sites.

    Duncan and Nathan grew up around winemaking in the Napa Valley. Nathan is a second generation cooper and personally builds all of the French oak barrels that are utilized in the ageing of all Arnot-Roberts wines. Over the years Duncan has worked making wine in the Napa Valley in wineries like, Caymus, Groth, Acacia, Kongsgaard. Total production of Arnot-Roberts is around 2,000 cases per year with thirteen individual wines.

    The 2014 Sonoma Coast is a blend of the six vineyards: La Cruz, Baker Lane, Marietta, Clary Ranch, Griffin's Lair and Que Syrah. All were whole cluster fermented with native yeasts, aged in neutral French oak and bottled unfined and unfiltered.

    Last year we attended the inaugural Sonoma County Barrel Auction. This was an event where wineries from throughout Sonoma County gathered to showcase wines that they have not bottled before, and to keep their wines unique, they don't plan on bottling them again! Last week we showcased the unique Pinot Noir from Patz & Hall, perhaps the best Pinot Noir they have ever made. This time, it's an amazing Syrah & Cabernet Sauvignon blend from one of our favorite Sonoma County producers...Arrowood!

    Arrowood Winery is pure Sonoma. The winery's influence in the region endures since the first wines were made three decades ago. Created exclusively for the Sonoma County Barrel Auction, Winemaker Kristina Weerner selected the top lots from the vintage to craft a unique blend of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. The Syrah comes from the Russian River Valley's acclaimed Saralee's vineyard. It is not uncommon for Arrowood's Syrah from this vineyard to score in the "outstanding" range with famed critic Robert Parker, and the Syrah for this blend was co-fermented with Viognier, which actually makes the wine darker and gives it more aromatics and texture. With that, they blended in 30% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Smothers-Remick Ridge Vineyard, a phenomenal property that sits roughly 600 feet above the valley floor in the northern Sonoma Mountains. It features 18 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon divided into 11 distinctive blocks that mirror the terroir. Known for its small, flavorful berries, this mountain site produced balanced wines with refined tannins. In the end, Kristina decided the best wine was blended of 70% Syrah and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon...and that's what we have here!

    Only 10 cases were bottled, and you can't get this wine at the winery, even if you're a member of their wine club! This is a gorgeous red blend, and it displays a lovely ruby/garnet color with aromas of freshly crushed cherry, raspberry, red currant, strawberry shortcake, vanilla, and hints of oak. After a short bit of time to breathe, aromas of smoke, Asian spices, and grilled meat begin to emerge. On the palate, the subtle hints of spice continues, along with black fruit, black cherry, a briary quality, cured meat, and plum. The finish is fairly long, with pronounced tannins that give a nice frame to the wine. Absolutely delectable, this is a wine that can easily be enjoyed now, but will continue to develop nicely in the cellar for another 7-10 years!

    The 2013 blend is comprised of three Grenache clones; Tablas Creek Vine Selection #2, 362, 814 (Spain). The grapes were hand-picked and fermented separately by vineyard block in five-ton, open-top tanks. After daily pump-overs (for color and tannin extraction) for 10 days, the wines were aged for 10 months in a mix of new and used French oak barrels. The Grenache was racked once in the spring of 2014, and once more just prior to bottling in January 2015.

    Deep ruby with a ruby-black core, the 2013 Austin Hope Grenache has classic aromas of dried black cherries, strawberries, and red currants along with hints of rose petal and black pepper, leather and dried herbs. On the palate, the wine is voluptuous and rich with nice firm, yet round tannins. Bold flavors of dark cherry, boysenberry and strawberry lead to a dusty leather note, marked by undertones of cinnamon and clove. The finish is lively with juicy acidity while a mix of spiced berry fruits linger on the palate.

    WINEMAKER'S NOTES - "Our 2013 Vermentino highlights this varietal’s unique qualities which makes it a perfect complement to seafood and lighter Mediterranean-type meals. 47.5% of the blend originates from the Sunnybrook Vineyard in San Luis Opisbo county, providing a foundation of ripe apple and pineapple flavors. Lovett Vineyard, in the Red Hills of Lake County AVA, contributes the other 52.5%, with bright acidity and light citrus notes.
    The resulting blend rewards with a delightful citrusy, herbal nose, a full mouthfeel, followed by refreshing acidity at the finish. This wine is best served well-chilled, and when paired with simply prepared grilled fish, it evokes great dinners in port side restaurants along the beautiful coast of Italy. It takes us there every time."

    Planted widely now in many regions of Virginia, Viognier evolves so vividly in Barboursville's terroir that they were the first to abandon oak and malolactic fermentation to reveal the complexity within its warm climate sultriness, and the vitality of middle palate sustaining its floral opulence. A wine of full body and adaptability with game as well as the traditional pairings of fish, shellfish, poultry and Asian cuisine.

    ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 91 POINTS - "The 2014 Viognier Reserve is dry, unoaked and comes in at 13% alcohol. This is the current release. What a beauty. Gentle, absolutely perfect in aromatics, elegance and flavor, this has everything you might want in a perfectly balanced Viognier. Tasty and always lifted, it is delicious in its subtle fashion. As I've said before, Barboursville has certainly proven to me that these can age. But I'm not sure why I want to. They don't gain much by aging and this is just perfect now. It would easily be my pick of Barboursville's whites this issue. It's a very nice bargain, too."

    Born in Michoacan, Mexico, winemaker Edgar Torres has lived in the coastal town of Cambria, California since the age of 8. As it seems to happen to many people who live close to Paso Robles, he fell in love with wine and decided to make his livelihood in the wine business. Hey...can you blame him?!? He has worked with many of the superstars of the Central Coast, including Matt Garretson, Augie Hug and Alta Maria Vineyards. More recently, he has worked alongside one of our best friends, McPrice Myers over at Barrel 27 (what a mentor!), when Edgar isn't tinkering on his own wines.

    Edgar makes wines that knock our socks off! The intensity of these wines are rivaled by few here in the United States and we suggest you check out what Edgar can do! El CabRhone is a play on words, as this is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (50%) and Rhone varietals (30% Grenache, 10% Syrah, and 10% Mourvedre). The wine offers a lovely blackberry and plum core which is surrounded by cinnamon and sweet applewood smoke notes, with orange-peel-candied-in-chocolate elements. Fine tannins and elegant acidity combine with the pure fruit and spices for a long, seamless finish. Only 145 cases were produced!

The Bogle family has been farming since the mid 1800’s and their reputation has continued to grow. The fact that they want to sell wines that people can actually afford doesn’t hurt, either.

    A blend of 54% Grenache, 29% Mourvedre, and 17% Counoise.

    ANTONIO GALLONI'S VINOUS MEDIA93 POINTS - "As is the case with pretty much all of the top producers in Paso Robles, Eric Jensen continues to tweak his wines toward greater elegance. This year's set of releases show the result of that work. To be sure, these have always been rich, full-flavored wines, but recent vintages, despite having been made from low yields and predictably concentrated fruit, show unlikely vivacity and the balance to age. I also find a greater sense of oak integration, which makes the wines drinkable soon after release. That said these are concentrated, well-balanced wines that, in my opinion, really deserve to be cellared. Earlier this year Jensen bought back the adjacent 30-acre parcel he sold to Scott Hawley at Torrin in 2005, as Hawley decided to expand with a larger estate vineyard."

    "Deep ruby. Intensely perfumed cherry compote, licorice and spicecake aromas open up with air and pick up suggestions of floral pastilles and smoky minerals. Stains the palate with lively, spice-tinged black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors lifted by a vibrant mineral element. At once concentrated and lithe, finishing with powerful thrust, youthful tannins and very persistent spice and mineral qualities."

    Brassfield's Volcano Ridge Vineyard is located on the steep slopes of an extinct cinder cone at 2,200 feet above sea level on the eastern end of High Valley. The pure volcanic soils are ideal for vine stress, restricting crop yields, and making wine that has both intensity and elegance.

    A blend of Syrah, Malbec, Mourvedre, and Petite Sirah, the 2013 Eruption is rich and intense. The wine has aromas of fresh blueberries, toasted brioche, black cherries, and mocha, giving way to flavors that are jammy, ripe and unctuous. The palate explodes with blackberries, dark currants, and clove while it layers supple and round coating tannins, making the wine both hedonistic while simultaneously elegant. The texture of this wine is perhaps its most distinguishing trait - mouth-coating with an endless finish. Be certain to have a second bottle on hand, the first won't last very long.

    Denise Shurtleff grew up in a California family of French origin that enjoyed wine. After graduating from Cal Poly SLO, she worked at a local winery as a lab tech during harvest, and was quickly introduced to the intensity and passion associated with fine winemaking.

The sustainably-farmed Tempusquet Vineyard in Santa Maria produces grapes of intense quality, and Denise knows just the methods needed to get the vineyard's best into the bottle. Reminiscent of a red wine from the Northern Rhone, this wonderful bottling shows Syrah's exotic aromas of cassis, violet, black peppercorn, cherry, cola, mocha, cinnamon and earth. The rich entry is bolstered by plenty of acidity and finishes with fine tannins.

    ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 99 POINTS - "As usual, this was a massive lineup by Washington's wild man, Charles Smith. Despite the larger-than-life persona, these wines are dead serious and are always some of the best I'm able to taste from the state. All of the Rhone varieties see 100% whole cluster, native fermentations and aging in mostly neutral French oak. At the top end, both the 2012 Royal City Syrah and 2012 Klein Syrah flirted with perfection, but the whole lineup is stacked with both quality and value. I think the 2012s are slightly superior to the '13s, but both of these vintages are strong here."

    "Another wine that flirts with perfection is the 2012 Syrah Royal City. From the Stoneridge Vineyard in the Columbia Valley, it offers up a smorgasbord of aromas and flavors, including kirsch and dark fruits, gamy meats, pepper, liquid rock and olive brine. Insanely textured, with full-bodied richness and power, loads of sweet tannin and blockbuster length, give it a year or so and then drink this incredible Syrah over the following decade."
