The Sans Liege The Co-Ferment” Offering (a blend of 53% Grenache, 37% Syrah,10% Mourvèdre) is a wine that captures the imagination and challenges expectations, it displays a beautiful purity and depth that is reminiscent of having a summer picnic in an ancient church. Resinous scents of black cherry cola, frankincense, fresh-peeled Clementine orange and vanilla extract lead to a well-structured and balanced palate of curried mix-berry cobbler, turmeric, dark chocolate cocoa nibs and black pepper with rocky, persistent tannins. Only 300 cases were produced!!
Winemaker Notes: The crisp air begins to make its way through your flannel as you slip your hatchet into a suede holster at your side. Collecting several pieces of freshly split red fir, you make your way towards the warm glow of the cabin. Once inside you smell green peppercorn and drying oregano – a basket of harvested rhubarb sits on the kitchen counter and lingonberry sauce simmers on the old stove. You settle into a cozy, velvet covered armchair and smile with anticipation for your holiday guests
