Screaming Eagle Winemaker’s Grenache Rocks!

 

 

In case you didn’t know her yet, It all started in the late 80s when Heidi Barrett began working for Dalla Valle as an “independent winemaker”. She began to develop a tiny project called Screaming Eagle shortly afterwards, and from there, things escalated quickly. With 5 perfect 100-point scores for her wines in the span of just a few years, Heidi skyrocketed to international fame, setting a world record for the highest price ever paid for a single bottle of wine – $500,000 for a 6L of 1992 Screaming Eagle at the Napa Valley Wine Auction in 2000. Today, Heidi maintains a stable of ultra-premium client wineries, including Paradigm, Lamborn, Amuse Bouche, Au Sommet, Fantesca, and Kenzo, as well as her own brands La Sirena and Barrett & Barrett. She and Bo live among their vineyards in Calistoga. In her free time, she enjoys scuba diving, flying her helicopter, making art, and gardening.

Heidi Barrett says: “This 2013 Grenache from La Sirena is dark ruby in color with wonderful open clean aromatics of ripe red plums, currants, and dried cranberry, definitely red fruit driven. There are pretty, sassy, spicy notes in the nose as well from French oak. This wine is dense for Grenache, juicy yet has moderate textural tannins and a flavor profile that lasts several minutes. The blend is 100% Grenache from two steep hillside vineyard blocks in St. Helena. Concentrated and bigger than our inaugural release last year. Quite delicious upon release and will continue to evolve and improve with a bit more time in the bottle. Suggested pairings –Paella, hearty pasta dishes, burgers, sausage, or wild duck. Quite delicious, Enjoy!”
