The winemaker says: “Sand & Stone is always our most vibrant cuvee due a good portion of Grenache, one of our most favorite grapes. Grenache absolutely thrives in the limestone soils of Paso Robles, and it seems as well suited here as its traditional home in the Southern Rhone. Coupled with the powerful nature of Petite Sirah, Sand & Stone showcases how we can bring tremendous freshness and overall drinkability to a rather powerful wine. To retain this freshness, we age the cuvee in special thick-staved 350L and 400L puncheon that limit oxygen exposure during elevage. From start to finish it brims with pure, focused fruit; dried strawberries, olallieberry, and black raspberry. Always floral and tremendously aromatic, it features plenty of spicy notes of white pepper, licorice, and smoky oak along with a juicy, youthfully tannic finish.”

Vinous 94 Points: “Saturated ruby. Ripe, spice-tinged black raspberry, vanilla and pungent flowers on the expansive nose. Intense red and dark berry liqueur flavors are lifted and sharpened by smoky minerality and a suggestion of white pepper. Concentrated as well as juicy and focused, finishing with impressive length and sexy notes of candied violet and spicecake.”
