“Site” is the venture of Jeremy Weintraub (longtime Seavey winemaker). He sources from the best “Sites” in California. This latest Red Rhone Blend is just a good example. The 2016 Site Red blend is sourced from the Larner Vineyard. The Larner Vineyard would be considered a “Grand Cru” designation if it was located in France.

Vinous 94 Points: “The 2016 Red Wine Larner Vineyard is another wine in this range that just dazzles with personality and character. Vibrant inky blue/purplish fruit, grilled herbs, lavender and spice all develop effortlessly. I especially admire the wine’s freshness and energy. The 2016 is a blend of mostly Syrah, with some Grenache and Viognier.”
Parker 94 Points: “Comprised of 75% Syrah, 20% Grenache and 5% Viognier, the 2016 Red Wine Larner Vineyard has an opaque ruby-purple color and scents of eucalyptus, potting soil, red and black currants, bacon fat, blueberry and boysenberry preserves plus fried herbs, roasted lamb and cracked pepper. Full-bodied, dense and intense, it packs in the black and blue fruit preserves with very plush, rounded tannins and good freshness to lift the very long, dense finish.”
